Accenture's corporate citizenship initiative, Skills to Succeed, applies an Accenture core competence—training talent—to the need for skills that open doors to employment around the world.
In 2010, we set an overarching goal for our efforts: by 2015, Skills to Succeed initiatives will equip 250,000 people around the world with the skills to get a job or build a business. We exceeded our goal early and increased our commitment: by 2015, we plan to equip 500,000 people around the world with these workplace and entrepreneurial skills.
Skills to Succeed inspires our people, and their passion, experience and commitment to developing and nurturing talent fuel our initiatives. We offer our people volunteering and pro bono consulting opportunities and expand our impact by replicating and scaling successful programs. Additionally, Skills to Succeed engages and inspires our clients, recruits, strategic partners and the people whose lives we change. Together we have the opportunity to create measurable impact that is greater than the sum of its parts.
