TORONTO , July 9, 2020 /CNW/ - Miranda McKie , a manager of applied intelligence and data architecture at Accenture (ACN) in Canada , has been recognized as the 2020 Catalyst Honours Emerging Leader Champion for her contributions to accelerating progress for women through workplace inclusion and diversity.

Catalyst will celebrate Miranda and five others who were named 2020 Honours Champions earlier today during a virtual conference from Oct. 6-8 . Themed "Progress Won't Pause," the conference will focus on the urgent need for continued progress around workplace inclusion despite the unprecedented disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We are proud to celebrate this well-deserved recognition of Miranda's work in breaking down barriers for women as well as creating and leading new initiatives to support inclusion and diversity, both at Accenture and in our community," said Jeffrey Russell , president of Accenture in Canada .

Tanya van Biesen , executive director, Canada , Catalyst, said, "Never before have equality and inclusion been so important. Trailblazers like Miranda show us how it's done, using her expertise in advanced technologies to build more effective interventions in the fight against systemic bias."

As head of the Accenture Toronto Women's Employee Resource Group, McKie has built a strong network of female-identifying employees and has rallied people at all levels of the company with her passion for equality. She has also used her expertise in data architecture and advanced analytics to develop inclusion and diversity initiatives through Accenture's pro bono practice.

For instance, McKie secured funding to promote and empower women in STEM education using data-driven guidance and unsupervised machine learning and to uncover mental health insights using natural language processing. She has also spearheaded internal projects to identify opportunities for enhanced inclusion and diversity programs and planning, including one using advanced analytics capabilities to better understand historical patterns.

"Miranda is a true role model for others through her commitment to ensuring that our workplace is inclusive and fosters a culture where all our people can thrive as their authentic selves," said Zahra Jadavji , managing director of inclusion and diversity at Accenture in Canada .

With inclusion and diversity embedded in its core values, Accenture pledged to accelerate the advancement of women in the workplace by signing theCatalyst Accord 2022. The company has also committed to reaching and sustaining overall gender balance (50% men and 50% women) and to having women hold at least 40% of leadership positions by 2025.

Accenture has also been recognized as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for 10 consecutive years and as one of the country's Best Diversity Employers for eight consecutive years byMediacorp.

多伦多,2020年7月9日/cnw/-加拿大埃森哲(Accenture)应用智能和数据架构经理米兰达·麦基(Miranda McKie)被评为2020年Catalyst荣誉新兴领袖冠军,以表彰她通过工作场所包容性和多样性为加快女性进步做出的贡献。

Catalyst将在10月6日至8日的虚拟会议上庆祝米兰达和其他五人今天早些时候被提名为2020年荣誉冠军。这次会议的主题是“进步不会停顿”,会议将聚焦于在工作场所包容方面继续取得进展的迫切需要,尽管新冠肺炎疫情造成了前所未有的破坏。

埃森哲驻加拿大总裁杰弗里·罗素(Jeffrey Russell)表示:“我们很自豪地庆祝米兰达在打破女性障碍以及创建和领导新的倡议以支持埃森哲和我们社区的包容性和多样性方面所做的工作,这是当之无愧的。”

Catalyst加拿大执行董事坦尼娅·范·比森(Tanya Van Biesen)表示:“平等和包容从未如此重要。像米兰达这样的开拓者向我们展示了这是如何做到的,利用她在先进技术方面的专业知识,建立了更有效的干预措施,与系统性偏见作斗争。”

作为埃森哲多伦多女性员工资源集团(Accenture Toronto Women‘s Employee Resource Group)的负责人,麦基建立了一个强大的女性员工网络,并以她对平等的热情将公司各级员工团结在一起。她还利用自己在数据架构和高级分析方面的专业知识,通过埃森哲的公益实践,制定了包容性和多样性倡议。

例如,McKie获得了资金,使用数据驱动的指导和无监督的机器学习来促进和增强女性在STEM教育中的能力,并使用自然语言处理来发现心理健康洞察力。她还带头开展了内部项目,以确定增强包容性和多样性的机会,包括使用高级分析能力更好地了解历史模式的项目和规划。

加拿大埃森哲(Accenture)负责包容和多样性的董事总经理扎赫拉·贾达夫吉(Zahra Jadavji)表示:“米兰达致力于确保我们的工作场所具有包容性,并培育了一种文化,让我们所有的人都能像真正的自己一样茁壮成长,她是其他人的真正榜样。”

随着包容性和多样性植根于其核心价值观,埃森哲承诺通过签署Catalyst 2022来加速提高女性在工作场所的地位。该公司还承诺达到并保持总体性别平衡(男性和女性各占50%),并在2025年之前让女性至少占据40%的领导职位。
