Accenture announces plans for gender-balanced workforce by 2025

 

A leading global management consultancy has announced plans to achieve a gender-balanced workforce by 2025.

Accenture currently has 150,000 women, nearly 40 percent of its global workforce. It has set targets on gender equality over the last few years, including a goal to reach 40 percent women new hires by 2017 which it achieved a year early and growing the percentage of women managing directors to 25 percent globally by 2020.

The company has taken steps to attract, retain and advance women through a variety of initiatives, including sponsorship of women, a commitment to publishing its workforce demographics, providing women with in-demand skills and working with other businesses and government on gender equality at work.

“Diversity makes our business stronger and more innovative and, most important, it makes the world a better place,” said Pierre Nanterme, Accenture’s chairman and CEO. “With this new goal, we are sending an important message to our people and our clients confirming our commitment to a gender-balanced workforce.”
