  • In 2021, Accenture reported 46% women participation in its workforce, an increase of 1 percentage points over 2020
  • In 2021, the representation of Asian employees in the US Accenture workforce was 25.6%, a decrease of 2.2 percentage points over 2020

Diversity, equity, and inclusivity (DEI) in an organization are fundamental to bringing unique perspectives and ideas to create innovative, productive, and resilient enterprises. DEI adds to equality of opportunity and treatment in the workplace at all stages of the employment relationship, including recruitment, retention, promotion, remuneration, and access to training and skills development.

The gender gap in organizations has narrowed over the past three decades, giving easier labour mobility worldwide. There has also been an increasing global awareness regarding the right to a dignified and respectful workplace irrespective of sexual orientation and ethnicity of the employees, which promotes an open and inclusive workplace. However, labour market disruption due to the COVID-19 has had devastating consequences globally. According to International Labour Organization (ILO), women’s employment declined by 5% globally in 2020 compared with around 4% for men.

The technology industry is working towards closing the gender gap and enhancing inclusivity in the years ahead. Technology companies thrive to create flexible work and well-being programs such as free mental health counseling and childcare to promote positive work culture.
