Accenture

Women on Walls is a campaign by Accenture in partnership with the Royal Irish Academy, that seeks to make women leaders visible through a series of commissioned portraits, creating a lasting cultural legacy for Ireland in 2016. The finished artworks will be on public display at the Royal Irish Academy, the first portraits of female subjects to grace the walls in the Academy’s 230 year history.
