What makes Accenture the employer of choice for so many women?
At Accenture, the success of their women around the globe is key to their success, and they're committed to supporting their professional goals and aspirations - which are as unique as the women who deliver high performance every day. With more than 115,000 women - 36 percent of their global workforce - they strive to provide an environment and culture that empower them to define their personal approaches to success.
Accenture believes that women can have it all and has developed opportunities to help women define and achieve their goals. Through Women's Mentoring, a program that pairs female leaders with Accenture leadership mentors, employees can take advantage of virtual workshops and networking tips to help guide their careers at Accenture.
Accenture connects women globally through the Accenture Women’s Network. Their global internal website connects women across the company with one another and provides resources that can help them define their visions of success through education, tools and the personal experiences of other Accenture women. The online forum offers women a place to share experiences, advice and insights, while finding inspiration from others. In local offices, women’s employee resource groups drive initiatives and programs to support women locally and help them build strong networks, both within Accenture and with the broader community.
For many years, Working Mother magazine has included Accenture in the “100 Best Companies for Working Mothers.” Building a family requires a different approach to how a professional manages everyday life and Accenture recognises this by providing parents with their Maternity Returners Program. This program helps ease the transition back into the workforce by providing career guidance and support for finding ideal re-entry roles. In addition, Accenture recognises the unique needs of professionals in the workplace by providing flexible work arrangements and a range of work/life programs that encourage balance between work and personal priorities.
