EY - Diverse abilities help us build a better working world

Diverse abilities help us build a better working world

  • Share

Starting with our founder, Arthur Young, we have always embraced differing abilities. Trained as a lawyer, Arthur was deaf with low vision and he wasn’t able to comfortably practice. He turned to finance and the new field of accounting to build his career. His “disability” drove him to innovation and entrepreneurship, which played a pivotal role in the development of our firm.

Our steadfast commitment to helping people with disabilities work comfortably and productively is illustrated through our ongoing investment in professional networks, educational resources and accessible work spaces. This includes providing accessibility in the technologies we build, buy and deploy.

For example, Ernst & Young LLP is the first of the Big Four to sign the Business Taskforce on Accessibilities Technology (BTAT) Charter.
