When She Rises, We All Rise
Leaders of businesses and organizations have the power to close the gender gap in career advancement and pay. The research shows that creating a culture of equality unlocks human potential and uncovers the key drivers of a workplace culture in which everyone can advance and thrive.
Culture is an accumulation of norms and customs that evolve over time, and leaders increasingly recognize that they need to be more proactive in shaping it. If they succeed, they will create a more diverse, engaged and highly skilled workforce, as well as contribute to improving the communities that they serve.
Workplace culture is complex and fluid, however, making it hard to define and influence. As organizations take steps to build conducive working environments, the key indicators of their success will not be the policies and practices that they implement, but the employee experiences that result.
Accenture is breaking new ground by measuring people’s perceptions and experiences of their workplaces. This extensive research and analysis has allowed us to identify the factors that can foster a culture of equality. As a result, this report helps leaders define and implement strategies that can make a tangible difference.
