Shalini Agarwal, Managing Director and Solution Architect Lead for North America Cloud First, Accenture Advanced Technology Centers in India, said, “Accenture has a global goal of achieving a gender-balanced workforce. We consciously prioritise bridging the gender gap in a meritocratic manner and have institutionalized several programs that enable our women breaking science barriers to build fulfilling careers. Our initiatives, such as High-Tech Women Edge and Quantum Impact programs fast-track the careers of high-performing women technologists through training and mentorship.”
Sheeja Thomas, Associate Vice President-HR, Movate, said, “On the International Day of Women and Girls in Science Participation, we celebrate the strides women have made in fields such as science, technology, and entrepreneurship! We must continue to support and empower women to upskill and reskill, particularly in STEM fields, where their representation is still disproportionately low. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Cracking the code: Innovation for a gender-equal future”.
