Ladies at Accenture - what is it like working as a woman / opps for advancement? I see a lot of lip service for inclusion and diversity and I want to know what is real versus PR. I’m considering a move from Deloitte.

They're definitely actioning on the public quotas they've announced. Both female and diversity The corporate America BS definitely exists, but it exists everywhere and I think Accenture does a much better job at promoting equality for all opportunities.

I'm a black woman in a side of Accenture where I'm very underrepresented but also heavily invested in. Top of all the pay bands and I've gotten offers elsewhere that don't come close for the same work. I don't know if it's just me or just luck or if they're making good on their word, but I've been very successful and have a lot of political cover when personal stuff comes up. All corporate is bullshit, right? Accenture just happens to have the best I've seen/heard of for a company this successful. It's one thing to be in a company that treats you decently, but it's another thing entirely to be part of a company that at least acknowledges the shortcomings, how decent isn't good enough, and does seem to make some bold progressive statements (with action plans) that comparable companies would never.

I’ve done super well here and feel very supported in my career (POC). I feel far more valued here than at Deloitte. There’s a palpable shifting tide (in a good way) at Accenture when it comes to meaningful D&I

You CAN be that leader that people want to work with. 1st, self assessment is required. Be honest: As a leader,have you engaged in/accepted Attribution Bias with a dash of gender &/or race bias? (See the pic) This is something we all need to be aware of as we lead our teams, provide performance feedback, & model the behaviors we'd like to see more of on our teams. Be on the lookout for Attribution Bias in yourself & on your team. It's a hindrance to creating a high-performing, inclusive culture.

As I get into my 30s, I’ve noticed recruiters focusing more on maternity leave than anything else when I ask about benefits. I know that benefit is important to a lot of women, but as a child free person it kind of makes me uncomfortable that they are just almost assuming I want a baby because of my gender. Maybe just mention it instead of emphasizing it? It also makes me assume that companies might discriminate against me in the job process (which isn’t cool for anyone) over a man.

How do I deal with the feeling of hating the overall human experience. I am a 23 year old male and have had an absolutely blessed life (gender for context not supporting evidence). But every day, I feel I am going through the motions and ‘numb’ in a sense. I also dread weekends as I use work as an escape, and there is nothing I can do to escape myself in weekends. I have struggled with depression since I hit puberty (~a decade of depression) and have wished for it to get better or to just end.
