Accenture Mental Health Allies

The Accenture Accent on Enablement Network is a vibrant and diverse community with over 1,000 members representing a wide spectrum of both visible and invisible disabilities.

Within the network, there are three core missions: to support all persons with disabilities to perform at their personal best; to influence the culture at Accenture to be more accepting of disability; and to ensure Accenture hires and retains the best talent, regardless of disability.

Liaising closely with Accenture recruitment teams, the network works to ensure all recruitment policies reflect best practice for persons with disabilities.

Accenture is dedicated to simplifying the reasonable adjustments process for employees to improve accessibility within Accenture offices.

CHAMPIONS

Accenture’s global Persons with Disabilities (PWD) Champions programme was created to bring people, supporters and friends together for networking, collaboration and mentoring.

The programmes disability champions are active supporters of global Accent on Enablement initiatives and programmes at Accenture.

Together, champions work to help foster an inclusive workplace for everyone.

As a global business of over 500,000 people, the reach for inclusion goes far beyond the UK. So much so, that Accenture currently has over 35,000 disability champions worldwide and over 1,600 members in the UK.

ALLIES

Alongside PWD Champions, Accenture has a group of trained and trusted people working as mental health allies.

Allies are dedicated to providing guidance for people seeking support or information for themselves or a colleague.

Mental health allies can help normalise and destigmatise conversations around mental health, promoting a culture of openness.

Currently, there are 2,400 Mental Health Allies in the UK, and almost 7,000 globally, who work to promote a healthy workplace environment.

INNOVATIVE

To support their people, Accenture are in the process of launching an enablement passport.

The Enablement Passport is a new tool designed to help conversations between people who require reasonable adjustments and their line managers, ensuring clear and effective communication about the benefits and challenges of their condition or situation.

The tool is completely voluntary but makes it much easier for people to get the support they need and for line managers to understand their role in offering the support.
