Accenture established its US Supplier Diversity Program to develop and expand relationships with minority-owned, women-owned, small and other growing companies.
By cultivating an array of relationships, Accenture is able to provide business opportunities to various enterprises, while enabling the long-term success of Accenture. Accenture remains strongly committed to ensuring all suppliers have equal opportunity to participate in the procurement sourcing process.
As part of its ongoing efforts to strengthen our US supplier diversity achievements, Accenture has established the mentoring program, the Diverse Supplier Development Program. As part of this effort, diverse suppliers are partnered with Accenture executives to learn more about Accenture’s business as well as further developing strategies to expand their businesses.
