Her initiatives include training Accenture’s employees on essential technological advancements and implementing programs like Accenture LearnVantage, an AI-powered platform designed to identify skills gaps and provide personalized learning experiences.

Accenture commitment to invest $3 billion in artificial intelligence and to double its AI-focused workforce to 80,000 employees impacts not only its workforce but will hopefully create a global impact as well, as these specialists assist clients in establishing the appropriate data infrastructure and enhancing their technical use of AI.
