Accenture is also investing in expanding its apprenticeship program to increase digital-based job opportunities for under-represented communities.

The company announced its forthcoming efforts as it unveiled a new innovation hub in Toronto’s financial district that aims to use technology including artificial intelligence and blockchain to solve clients’ challenges.

The new Toronto location that employs 300 workers joins a network of 10 hubs that Accenture operates across North America.
