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.
Commitment to advancing social equity and inclusive growth
As a global organization, EY has an opportunity to address the impact of inequities and injustice, and push for progress within EY and beyond. We commit to advance social equity and inclusive growth and stand against injustice, bias, discrimination and racism.
Social equity means that each person at EY has access to the resources and opportunities they need, given different starting points and different needs. It also means removing barriers to opportunities and inclusive experiences that may lead to unequal outcomes.
We believe businesses have direct influence to address these gaps and build a better working world, through the way we team and lead, the cultures we create on teams, how we assign and value work, how we evaluate performance, and make advancement and appointment decisions.
To demonstrate our commitment, the Global Executive (GE) has signed the EY GE DE&I statement which underscores our increased focus on diversity, equity and inclusiveness.
