Podcast interview and production by Zoë Rosal
Pearlynne Garcia is the Managing Director for Accenture Technology in the Philippines. She’s a deeply skilled technologist and an advocate for inclusion and diversity programs. Validated by Accenture’s HR Talent Strategy Manager for Inclusion and Diversity, Ted Chan, we can be inspired by Pearlynne’s sense of foresight where she is able to effectively anticipate the evolving needs of parents in the workplace, her ability to empower by encouraging her team to speak their mind, pitch in and help with Accenture’s advocacies, and lastly her passion for inclusion and action to partner with different communities such as their own LGBTQ+, and PWD.
For two decades and counting, Pearlynne has made her way to the top of the tier; collecting valuable lessons in technology, leadership, and that sweet spot between work and family. Alongside being a leader, Pearlynne is also a working parent.
In this podcast, Pearlynne shares stories about her daily life as a woman leader in technology while being a mother to three beautiful children, and how Accenture’s role has helped her in this inspiring journey.
Inclusion for Women—the Accenture Way
We spoke to Ted Chan, HR Talent Strategy Manager for Inclusion and Diversity, and asked him to shed more light on how the company creates an environment of inclusivity with an emphasis on women.
Accenture offers programs, initiatives, established benefits and set up communities inside the organization as they strive for everyone to have a strong sense of belonging—to feel validated, understood, and appreciated.
The organization ensures they have a talent management system that supports inclusivity for women, for any gender identity, and for people with disabilities to be successful at work and at home—to thrive in their careers and personal life.
