Diversity and Inclusion

Read more

Ideas aren’t bound by geographic borders, race, age, educational background, gender or ability — and neither are we. At EY we’re building a workplace where everyone can feel like they belong.

An inclusive and welcoming culture has always been at the heart of EY.  EY co-founder, Arthur Young,  was deaf and had low vision. His disabilities drove him to become an entrepreneur who helped shape the accounting profession and ultimately develop the EY organisation. And so, at EY today, Diversity and Inclusiveness are not ‘nice to haves’, they are business imperatives. Inclusive organisations maximise the power of all differences and realise the full potential of all their employees. This minimises blind spots and encourages truly innovative thinking.

A sense of belonging is key to helping people be their best and enabling them to enjoy what they do. That’s why we make sure everyone at EY feels recognised, valued and part of our family. To foster this sense of belonging, we have a number of supports in place:

  • Flexibility for all: We aspire to be the leading professional services firm for both informal and formal flexible working arrangements that benefit our people, our clients and the communities we work with. The family network provides support to employees at all stages of their lives. Their aim is to build a network of peers who can share their experiences of juggling all aspects of family life with their day to day working life.
