Top Company for Diversity Councils: EY

Accepting Award: Stephen Howe Jr., Americas Managing Partner and U.S. Firm Managing Partner

Reasons for Honor:

Leaders leading by example can make all the difference when it comes to demonstrating diversity commitment. The EY diversity council meets quarterly, sets corporate diversity-and-inclusion goals, and links those goals to compensation. Council members, all of whom are partners, represent different areas of expertise and demographics. They all serve as mentors, and they have two-year rotations that can be extended if they are making a significant impact.

The council is co-chaired by Steve Howe, Americas Managing Partner and U.S. Firm Managing Partner, and Karyn Twaronite, Partner and Americas Inclusiveness Officer.

Demonstrating his commitment to the importance of diversity and inclusion at EY, it is no surprise that Steve Howe has said, “My job is to run the business. This is fundamental to our business.”
