Corporate Social Responsibility at Accenture

What projects/initiatives does your employer run and what have you worked on personally?

Everyone has to participate on CSR one day per year. I have participated in one event where I had to help the kids with cerebral palsy syndrome.

There are amazing opportunities in CSR, especially in the Development Program where you get to take reduced pay (although it's made up in living expenses being covered) to go overseas and work with an NGO or on a social project.

Every employee gets 1 volunteer day a year to support a cause of their choice. They don’t have to take it - and can request additional days, but the volunteer day is paid. They support Tech Girls are Super Heroes - a movement that goes into primary schools and encourages younger girls to get into coding and engineering roles. Which encourages them to enter a largely male dominated workplace.
