Diversity and inclusiveness

Diversity and inclusiveness are not “nice to haves.” They are business imperatives.

Diverse perspectives, combined with an inclusive culture, drive better decision-making, stimulate innovation, increase organizational agility and strengthen resilience to disruption. 

Inclusive organizations maximize the power of all differences and realize the full potential of all of their employees. This minimizes blind spots, and encourages truly innovative thinking. Learn how creating and maintaining a culture of diversity and inclusiveness can help your organization sustain long-term success in today’s global marketplace.

To demonstrate our commitment, the EY US Executive Committee (USEC) has signed the EY Board Diversity Statement, which underscores our increased focus on diversity and inclusiveness.
