“Working Mother’s list is increasingly important as it focuses attention on great companies, best practices and high performers,” said Chloe Barzey, managing director, Accenture. “Every day I work with and learn from incredible moms and, as we all strive to achieve our own definitions of success, it’s important to recognize the women – and their companies – who work so hard and to honor the impact mentoring, sponsorship and flexibility have on career success.”

In addition to honoring Chloe, Working Mother focused on Accenture’s Women’s Employee Resource Group, which drives initiatives to support women and help them build strong networks, both within Accenture and with the broader community. Currently, Accenture has more than 85 local women’s networking groups in 32 countries.
