How Elizabeth is building a better working world

“At the heart of EY, we are risk professionals – and yet the pace of change today is so fast that no organization has the resources and capacity to address every risk with equal rigor.

The complex challenge to protect an enterprise is best addressed by bringing together diverse perspectives and being open to non-traditional problem solving.

I focus on advancing a diversity of perspective – growing teams, embracing differences, and pushing all of us to think smarter, make our best choices, develop consensus and build a more secure working world.”
