2023 Top 50: Organizational Restructuring: Accounting for Downsizing and Right-Sizing

During a Fireside Chat at Fair360’s Top 50 event on May 2, Fair360 (formerly DiversityInc) CEO Carolynn Johnson and Accenture North America CEO Jimmy Etheredge discussed organizational restructuring and downsizing and right-sizing. 

 Accenture was No. 1 on the 2022 Top 50 Companies for Diversity list and was inducted into the Hall of Fame this year.  

 Etheredge spoke about how to prioritize fairness during times of transition and change, such as restructuring or layoffs. Etheredge mentioned that Accenture has doubled down on employee resource groups (ERGs), expanded apprenticeship programs and set targets for increasing diversity in leadership. 

 He then emphasized the power of disruption to drive change. 

 “If you feel like the status quo isn’t where it needs to be, then having something that’s disruptive is going to be helpful to change that.”
