USA: Accenture intends to grow the percentage of women it hires to at least 40 percent worldwide by 2017. Approximately 39 percent of the company’s more than 100,000 new hires were women in the fiscal year 2015, ended August.

Gender equality is an essential element of an inclusive workplace, says Accenture Chairman and CEO Pierre Nanterme. “At Accenture, our commitment to inclusion and diversity starts at the top, and we empower all of our people – including our more than 130,000 women – to lead,” said he.

The company has ongoing rigorous processes to identify potential pay discrepancies, looking carefully at specific roles in each country, and is proactive at all stages of an individual’s career. “If we identify a problem, we fix it,” Nanterme said.
