Alexis Rose is the Global Inclusion and Diversity Director for Accenture Strategy. She is also the Sponsor of Accenture UK’s Accent on Gender Network.
Prior to taking on this newly created role in January 2020, she spent six years as the Director of Business Operations for Accenture Strategy Europe. Alexis joined Accenture as a graduate in 2001 and spent seven years client-facing in the Strategy practice before moving into business operations, holding a number of roles in Management Consulting and Strategy in the UK and subsequently in Europe. Alexis is hugely passionate about both gender parity and balancing a fulfilling career with achieving personal goals. She was the programme lead for Accenture UK’s Accent on Gender Network for three years prior to taking on the sponsor role, championing inclusion through a thriving employee network which includes both men and women. She believes that one of the most important factors in closing the gender pay gap is to inspire younger women to grow their careers and aspire to leadership roles, and she regularly teaches on Accenture’s internal female development programmes. She is an Ambassador for everywoman and a member of the Business in The Community Gender Leadership Team.
Alexis is a Cambridge University and Judge Business School alumna with an MA in Social and Political Sciences and Management Studies. In 2012 she was recognised as one of Management Today's "35 Women Under 35". Outside of work, she is the Chair of the Board of Trustees for a central London theatre charity, a keen amateur theatre performer, and an aspiring photographer.
“Now, more than ever, it’s vital we recognise inspiring and responsible leaders. If you know an exceptional woman in business, who has championed equality and been a role model to you and the business – do consider shining a light on their success.”
