Accenture is committed to the well being and inclusion of their LGBTQIA+ employees globally and supports them through the Allies network, in which all employees can come together to learn about LGBTQIA+ related topics, as well as by, for example, granting same sex couples the same benefits as other couples at all geographies.
Accenture BeLux is glad to be able to show this support also by participating in Open@Work, to be inspired and inspire through experiences and ideas sharing with other organisations. This is part of our strategy to contribute to a more diverse workplace and society, in which every individual has a place and is respected and valued.
