Accenture Grants Quest Alliance India an Additional US$623,000 to Equip Disadvantaged Young People with Career Readiness Skills

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) and Quest Alliance India today announced that Accenture and the Accenture Foundations have awarded Quest Alliance India an additional grant of US$623,000 to help the organization provide approximately 3,000 disadvantaged young people with career and workplace skills.
