How Julia is building a better working world
“I support EY leaders and client teams with insights drawn from our collective experience as an organization and from conclusions based on thorough research. I seek to bring together as many perspectives as possible to create nuanced understandings of complex issues. Within the EY organization, I lead our learning and development efforts for Advanced Manufacturing to foster the growth of sector knowledge among our professionals.
I am also passionately committed to EY’s support of our military veteran employees and to the veterans in our communities, which is why I volunteer as a career coach with the EY Veterans Network in Chicago.”
