In today's Technology industry, 82% of workers are men. Only 8% of ICT students are women. 

At Accenture, only 29,2% of our Technology group are women despite the fact that we are committed to having a diverse workforce. We are determined to address this situation and achieve a gender-balanced Technology workforce at Accenture by 2025. Which is why we have launched the Tech Academy. We  believe that diversity drives innovation and performance is about being yourself in a truly human working environment. 

If you are a woman who wants to build a new career in the Technology consulting world, this program is for you.

A new opportunity to reorient your career to consultancy and technology. Accenture offers you a one-month training program with an easy-to-follow introduction to the world of technology consulting. This will allow you to start as from day one as an Accenture consultant with a permanent contract!
