Alexis Rose is the Director of Business Operations for Accenture Strategy Europe, driving Accenture’s growing practice at the intersection of business, technology, execution and data/analytics.
She 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 now in Europe. She is the lead for Accenture UK’s Accent on Gender Network, championing inclusion through a thriving employee network that includes both men and women. Accenture has been named the top company on the Thomson Reuters D&I Index, which recognises the 100 most diverse and inclusive companies in the world.
Alexis is passionate about both gender parity and balancing a fulfilling career with achieving personal goals. 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 also an Ambassador for everywoman.
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.
