Accenture's Women on Walls at DCU

Accenture's Women on Walls is a campaign that seeks to make women leaders visible through a series of commissioned portraits that will create a lasting cultural legacy for Ireland. In February 2020, DCU joined the campaign.

Accenture’s Women on Walls at DCU recognises the pioneering achievements of a group of extraordinary women and enhance the visibility of female leaders in STEM. In time, the new portraits will be hung in The Future-Tech Building located at DCU’s Glasnevin Campus. The flagship building will be at the forefront of DCU’s international reputation for excellence in science, computing and engineering disciplines.

The portraits - the official launch can be seen below - is only one aspect of the project. For more content and more information visit www.womenonwalls.com/dcu
