When organizations build a culture that values all dimensions of diversity – one that provides equitable opportunities for people to grow, learn and advance – it creates an environment where everyone thrives and where people can experience a true sense of belonging.

Karyn Twaronite

EY Global Vice Chair – Diversity & Inclusiveness

Bring us your open mind so we can open doors

At EY, you’ll find a diverse and inclusive culture, where you're embraced and respected for who you are. We want you to feel like you belong here because your uniqueness helps us to stand apart.

We believe we can solve the toughest challenges together by valuing our differences and teaming inclusively to build safety and trust. Diverse viewpoints are the catalysts that lead to better questions and better answers. That’s when creative ideas flow, igniting innovation and inspiring more effective solutions.

We welcome all people, no matter who they are or what their background. Each of us is different, and we value and respect all EY people.

A diverse and inclusive culture. It’s yours to build.

When people feel valued for their many differences, they feel a part of something greater; they feel like they belong. This can have a powerful effect on performance. When we feel we belong, we feel more confident, competent and secure, able to be ourselves and offer differing viewpoints safe in the knowledge that they will be heard and that they matter. We feel less stressed and more motivated and engaged, more likely to come up with inspired contributions. We feel like trusted insiders.

We want all EY people to experience that feeling of belonging, yet the increasing diversity of EY teams can also make it harder to feel like you belong. By building truly inclusive teams, we can grow that sense of belonging for all team members and create a virtuous cycle: the more you feel you belong, the more you will behave inclusively.

We each have multiple aspects of our identity, many of which may not be visible to others. How much we share differs from person to person depending on factors such as personality and culture, but also on how safe we feel. By being open and showing we care we help to build trust, allowing you to reveal more of who you are to inspire fuller and better contributions.

We foster high-performing teams by having a shared vision, by engaging each member in discussions and decisions, by supporting each other professionally and personally, by investing in each other's success and by making everyone feel they belong.

We’re 284,000 different perspectives

We know that diverse and inclusive teams make the working world better. By drawing on different perspectives and exchanging ideas freely across borders, we stimulate innovation, foster collaboration and deepen relationships. This increases organisational agility and strengthens resilience to disruption. It drives better decision-making and, ultimately, growth.

We are committed to creating an environment where everyone feels valued. Our focus on diversity and inclusiveness is integral to how we serve clients, develop EY people and play a leadership role in communities around the world. Working with us, you’ll be encouraged to embrace diversity in all its forms. You’ll have the chance to work in global teams comprised of diverse talents and experiences that combine to produce smarter and better services. Allied with inspiring and rewarding opportunities to work across borders and cultures, you’ll be able to embrace and learn from many different viewpoints.

We are strongly committed to equal opportunity and are embedding D&I in all processes, from recruitment to assignments, from career management to recognition.

A variety of professional networks such as Unity (LGBTI+ network), Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Network, Gender Network, Cultural Network and Ability Network provide a supportive community and build awareness of diverse attributes to promote inclusiveness.
