For Omar, DEI is at the heart of everything he does and is crucial for the company’s success. In early 2021, he shaped and implemented the “New Business DEI Initiative” that reviews the gender and ethnic diversity of team structures in proposed work to embed DEI into the fabric of the business he leads. The initiative is increasing opportunities for the firm’s diverse workforce, helping them to progress with their career. Since the initiative began, 242 programs have been reviewed, triggering 46 deep dives with leaders to either re-shape the teams immediately or identify actions to correct them in the immediate future. Additionally, he made sure that this initiative became a pre-requisite to any new business being discussed for approval and a mandatory approval step in the management process. Omar also actively mentors and sponsors women at all levels in his business and across Accenture, formally and informally, to grow their careers.
