Accenture consistently placed on the index for four years, taking pride in its diverse board of directors, gender-balanced workforce, continuous learning, and professional development, and annual though leadership that aims to advance the conversation around workplace equality.

“Building a culture of equality where everyone can thrive is key to who we are as a company,” said Julie Sweet, Accenture’s chief executive officer. “We value each other’s unique backgrounds, skills and experience and hold ourselves accountable for progress against bold goals. Embracing inclusion and diversity is one of the things that makes Accenture so special, and we are honored that Refinitiv has once again recognized our commitment.”

To compile the Index, Refinitiv assessed publicly available data for more than 7,000 companies globally, measuring them on 24 metrics across four key pillars: Diversity, Inclusion, People Development, and News & Controversies. Every company is assigned a pillar score and benchmarked against industry peers for each data point to determine the Index rankings.

“This year marks the second consecutive year that Accenture has led the Top 100 ranking and we are pleased to recognize its demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusion across their organization," said Debra Walton, chief revenue officer at Refinitiv.

For its longstanding commitment to inclusion and diversity, Accenture has earned broad recognition as an employer of choice and a leader in workplace equality. Over the past year alone, the company has been recognized on numerous lists, including Bloomberg’s Gender–Equality Index; DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity in the US; The Times’ Top 50 Employers for Women in the UK; Nikkei Top 100 Companies for Women in Japan; Working Mother & AVTAR’s 100 Best Companies for Women in India; Disability:IN’s Disability Equality Index; and the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index.
