Accelerating the journey to gender parity
Through Women. Fast forward, EY is drawing attention to the issue of global gender parity and calling on others to join us in accelerating change.
Accelerating achievement of gender parity — within EY and in business at large — is an economic imperative. The world can’t afford to wait as long as some estimates predict — another 170 years — for women to achieve gender parity in the workplace.
The economic benefits of gender parity — from stronger business outcomes and higher GDP to more growth and innovation — have been proven time and time again.Beth Brooke-Marciniak, EY Global Vice Chair – Public Policy
To speed up the clock, we need purposeful action by both men and women to recruit, retain and advance women in equal proportion to their numbers and commensurate with the limitless potential they offer the workplace.
That’s why EY created Women. Fast forward — a unifying platform that brings together the collective knowledge of our people and our clients. It’s an opportunity not only to highlight our own commitment to the advancement of women in the workplace, but also to offer leadership and guidance as we call upon others to put gender on their agendas.
Together, we believe we can redefine opportunities for future generations of women, forging a lasting legacy of growth, increased prosperity and stronger communities throughout the world.Discover more
