2019 - Corporation of the Year

Sept 27, 2019

Accenture champions change and empowers communities with practices such as the Supplier Inclusion & Sustainability Program, which reaches 18 countries. By incorporating diverse businesses into the supply chain, the company gains access to responsive and cost-competitive supply solutions for its clients. This is particularly true of its professional services suppliers and contractors, who make up the majority of the company’s procurement spend. Another program is the Diverse Supplier Development Program (DSDP) that develops and expands relationships with businesses owned by ethnic minorities, women, persons with disabilities, members of the LGBT community, veterans and other diverse entrepreneurs. The 12- to 18-month program matches senior Accenture executive mentors with diverse supplier “protégé” companies to help them grow their businesses. As of fiscal 2018, 144 diverse suppliers have graduated in Canada, South Africa, United Kingdom, Ireland and the U.S. The goal is to graduate 170 diverse suppliers by fiscal 2020 and expand into India and Latin America.
Accenture procurement leaders can be found participating in organizations such as CAMSC, Global Supplier Diversity Alliance, CGLCC, WEConnect International and MSDUK.
