Accenture Recognized Among “Canada’s Best Diversity Employers” For 2013

Accenture has been named to Canada’s Best Diversity Employers list, an annual competition to recognize Canadian employers with exceptional workplace diversity and inclusivity programs. The publication of standings, now in its sixth year, appears today in The Globe and Mail and on the Canadian job search website, Eluta.ca.

“As a global company, Accenture is culturally diverse by nature. We believe in fostering our employees’ diverse talents and backgrounds, while remaining united by our core values and common methodologies,” said Michael Denham, president and country managing director of Accenture’s Canadian operations. “By embracing diversity and ensuring a culture of inclusion, we are able to attract the talent we need to serve our clients at the highest possible level.”

"At Accenture we promote diversity with client forums, supplier diversity programs and recruiting, as well as employee engagement and retention programs,” said Claudia Thompson, managing director, Human Capital & Diversity for Accenture in Canada. “In addition, our employee resource groups connect individuals to help them strengthen their networks and enhance their working experience at Accenture.”

Accenture is named among 55 companies on the list of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers. Approximately two percent of companies – of the more than 2,750 that applied – were recognized this year. Several of Accenture’s initiatives contributed to its inclusion on the ranking, including:

  • Women’s platform: Through the Defining success. Your way. initiative, Accenture is committed to helping its more than 90,000 female employees worldwide define and develop their own paths to success
  • Persons with Disabilities (PwD): A global employee resource group focuses on efforts to help PwD across Accenture, including assistive technology, workplace accommodations, HR policies, training and development, geographic networking and recruiting efforts
  • Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT): Accenture’s LGBT program include communications, education and development, events, collaboration, policies, procedures and regional networks
  • Supplier diversity: The company’s supplier diversity program includes mentoring small, minority and women-owned businesses to help them grow
  • Aboriginal strategy: In addition to programs related to Aboriginal employees, Accenture is actively engaged in projects to support skills and opportunities for Aboriginal people and businesses, including supplier diversity programs and youth mentoring
