Jean has championed gender equality throughout her time as Finance Director and now Products Group Operating Officer at Accenture. In 2017, she became Products D&I lead, aiming to achieve greater impact in creating a culture of transparency, belonging, and stewardship. She has enlisted Accenture’s Products leadership team and elevated the D&I agenda throughout the organisation. During Jean’s tenure as D&I lead, significant improvements have been made in culture and D&I metrics, including an increase in gender mix at leadership level and overall, improvements in the female leader attrition gap, proper sponsorship of women up for promotion to managing director and above, and the establishment of an active D&I leadership network across 43 countries. Jean has personally coached over 100 women leaders, launched a Diverse Referral Cultivation programme, required D&I metrics be added to leadership performance objectives, led the Products Women’s Network, collaborated with clients on joint initiatives to further their mutual D&I agenda and required a diverse gender slate for every position recruited in Products. Externally, Jean has dedicated countless hours to championing women’s issues through her involvement with the Society of Women Engineers at Portland State University, Assistance with Grief Board, Women’s Vision Foundation, WiseWomen Council and the University of Colorado Engineering Advisory Council among many others.
