How Kate is building a better working world

“There are so many ways to contribute to our organization’s commitment to building a better working world. With my EY Tax Leadership team, I promote and take responsibility for a culture of inclusiveness and am a member of the EY Global Diversity and Inclusiveness Steering committee.
