Accenture invited the audience to share their commitment to inclusivity during a plenary session.
The Summit gathered together more than 1,300 passionate delegates aged 18-30, who have shown strong leadership in areas ranging from human rights to transparency in business to climate change to peace. The speeches and projects presented were very powerful and inspirational. And as a result, I am sure each member of the audience had the same question running through their mind in the days following the Summit, “what am I going to do now?”
Actually, there’s no right way to answer this question, but the most important thing is to start somewhere! You don’t need to have the perfect idea or a solid business case to transform a thought into an impactful project, just be confident and start somewhere!
And if you don’t know where to start, let your passions guide the way forward! Take time to think about what you’re passionate about, what are the subject areas that inspired you the most? In my case, I was really drawn by two initiatives dedicated to creating more inclusive work spaces. The Summit introduced us to two great examples from brilliant women about how diversity can make the organizations of today stronger and more agile.
