Sara Abiusi will lead Accenture Federal Services’ Inclusion & Diversity Advisory Council. She is a senior managing director and quality and risk lead.
The I&D Advisory Council shapes and informs the company’s inclusion and diversity initiatives, developing strategic plans and making recommendations on increasing diversity hiring and advancement to create a culture where all people thrive.
“I’m deeply proud of the work the Inclusion and Diversity Advisory Council has accomplished since its inception,” Abiusi said.
“From shaping the Advancement Planning Program, which helps Accenture Federal Services’ people advance their careers with an intentional focus on underrepresented communities through sponsorship and leadership actions, to expanding our recruitment and relationships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the council does vital work. As chair, I look forward to ensuring that the chorus of diverse voices within our company are heard.”
Abiusi also serves as the U.S. executive sponsor of Accenture’s Asian Pacific American Employee Resource Group and on the board of directors for the Greater Washington Chapter of Ascend.
She succeeds Ben Peavy in the role of chair of the I&D Advisory Council after he wraps up his two-year term.
