How Simon is building a better working world
Although the law is written in abstract terms, its consequences for society and the environment are very real and therefore, as a legal advisor, you have direct impact. In that position of privilege, I try to give back to society what I received by promoting causes which are not only beneficial for my clients but offer a return to the larger community in which EY operates.
