Lisa Neuberger Fernandez is a Managing Director at Accenture. Leading Strategy and Innovation for Corporate Citizenship, she oversees global, cross-functional teams and networks to innovate with emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, extended reality and blockchain to improve outcomes of community investments and to publish actionable insights for clients and workforce practitioners with original research such as Inclusive Future of Work: A Call to Action and New Skills Now.
A proven social innovator, Lisa has a track record of managing teams to launch new models – such as a nonprofit consulting org (www.newsector.org) spun out of Accenture in 2001, a patented Public Service Value ROI model that sparked a new consulting practice and think tank in 2005, and the Sustainability Services practice for Communications and High-Tech clients at Accenture in 2007. She started her career at Accenture as a strategy consultant with ten years of experience driving performance for clients across public, private and nonprofit sectors.
Lisa gained public sector experience at the White House, the U.S. Senate, and the OECD, and currently serves as an advisor to Accenture Labs, Upwardly Global, REDF, Save the Children, and as a judge for the MIT Inclusive Innovation Challenge. She has graduate degrees from Wharton Business School and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.
