B&B: Diversity in the real life

A powerful story about a mom’s dream of having a “princess” daughter, and how reality kicked in when her 13 year old daughter came out as a lesbian. We follow mom through a mix of reactions, until she decided to be the “best proud mom, ever”. By actively using her experiences as a proud mom, she challenged and inspired Accenture Nordic to end the silence and grow into a loud and proud workplace. The power of a proud mom’s unconditional love and acceptance can make amazing things happen.
