Accenture believes in the importance of creating a stronger talent pipeline by acknowledging the national need for skills. Accenture's U.S. South Human Resources Lead Claudia Barlow says:
“Through Accenture’s Skills to Succeed corporate citizenship initiative, we are addressing the global need for skills that open the doors to employment and economic opportunities.”
In Austin, they partner with several area nonprofits such as Merivis and the Dream Come True Foundation to provide financial and volunteer support for their education, training, and employment programs where underserved groups are equipped with job readiness and market-relevant skills.
Additionally, working with organizations like KIPP and Breakthrough Central Texas, the Skills to Succeed Internship Program aims to create bridges between nonprofit partners and opportunities for employment at Accenture while upskilling Austin’s future workforce.
