William D. Green, Accenture’s Chairman and CEO, accepted the award at this week’s DiversityInc event, “How Leadership Expresses Diversity Commitment.”
“One of the hottest topics in corporate America these days – for good reason – is generational communications,” said Luke Visconti, CEO of DiversityInc. “Accenture is a company that has consistently proven itself as a diversity leader and demonstrated remarkable leadership in critical areas. Its efforts to broaden leadership styles, management styles and perceptions across generations make it a trailblazer in this increasingly critical area.”
“We work hard to appreciate the differences among all of our people -- including among generations -- and we focus on creating an environment where everyone can work together,” said LaMae Allen de Jongh, managing director, US Human Capital & Diversity at Accenture. “That means using our common core values and methodologies to work effectively across different geographies, workforces and generations. When we do it right, we deliver diverse thoughts and perspectives, as well as flexibility and agility, which really set Accenture apart.”
This year, Accenture was also named to The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list for the third consecutive year. Additionally, DiversityInc awarded Accenture the #10 position on both The DiversityInc Top Ten Companies for Recruitment and Retention and the DiversityInc Top Ten Global Diversity Companies lists.
