How Irma is building a better working world
“I am a passionate advocate of the organizations’ D&I strategy. I know it’s not enough to simply have more seats at the table for marginalized groups if they don’t feel safe or believe they can be their true selves at work. I contribute toward building a better working world by using my platform as the CI’s talent leader to help people to believe in themselves and encourage EY leaders and future leaders to lead authentically.”
