Skills To Succeed

Skills to Succeed, Accenture's corporate citizenship initiative, applies an Accenture core competence—training talent—to the need for skills that open doors to employment around the world. It is a key aspect of our commitment to embed corporate social responsibility into our business.

We have equipped more than 2.2 million people with the skills to get a job or build a business. We aim to equip more than 3 million people by the end of fiscal 2020. Additionally, we work together to promote equality and inclusiveness, and to ensure that our beneficiaries reflect diverse backgrounds, cultures and experiences. In fiscal 2017, women represented 52 percent of our beneficiaries around the world. We are continuously evolving Skills to Succeed to address urgent workforce needs around the world and equip individuals to thrive in the digital economy.

Skills to Succeed inspires our people. Their passion, experience and commitment to develop and nurture their talents fuel our initiatives—and demonstrate the impact business can have when they harness their talents to make a difference.

Skills to Succeed have seized the imagination of our employees, and their time, skills, advisory services and expertise enhance our impact around the world.
