2020 has once again shone a light on the pervasive nature of discrimination and how it resides in all corners of society. One of these corners is of course business, and as a result, leaders have had to address this. But even within the world of business, there are certain areas in particular where discrimination is being allowed to thrive, and talent is undoubtedly one. It’s now well-acknowledged that acquisition is a breeding ground for bias, and as a result many organizations are putting measures in place to combat this. One such organization is professional services company Accenture, which has implemented initiatives in recent times to eradicate hiring discrimination. In this session, Headstart’s Tom Price-Daniel delves into this further, shedding light on Accenture’s journey and why it matters.
