Accenture's corporate citizenship initiative, Skills to Succeed, helps address the global need for skills that open doors to employment and economic opportunity. It does this by drawing on two of Accenture’s unique capabilities: training talent and convening powerful partnerships to develop collaborative solutions.
Together with our strategic partners, we have equipped more than half a million people with the skills to get a job or build a business—more than doubling the impact we set out to achieve when we announced our Skills to Succeed goal in 2010. Against this backdrop, we are increasing our target: by 2015 we will equip 700,000 people worldwide with workplace and entrepreneurial skills.
Skills to Succeed inspire 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.
