“Be bold and passionate in taking up whichever career or area you want to pursue. Any obstacles, personal or professional, can be tackled through a problem solving mindset once you have self-conviction about your goals.
Today, most corporate and organizations have recognized the importance of inclusion and diversity in their workforce and the fact that these act as very strong innovation multipliers.
At Accenture, we have a publicly stated our goal to get to 50/50 gender equality by 2025, and to have more women at the highest level of leadership. Hence there is a strong focus on hiring, retention and growing women employees across domains.
That said, we also recognize diversity to be broader than gender diversity, and have many programs to attract talent from all segments of society, including PWD, LGBTQ and veterans.”
