- Steve Howe, EY's US Chairman and Americas Managing Partner has made D&I a strategic business priority. Steve and Karyn Twaronite, who is the Global Inclusiveness Officer, chair their Diversity Advisory Council, which meets monthly. We are invited to one meeting every year and it's impressive to see the engagement and diversity of EY's senior leadership.
- EY has the best external & internal diversity communications efforts we have ever seen, led by David O'Brien, Partner, Americas Brand, Marketing and Communications.
- EY is a pioneer in inclusion and mainstreaming of people with disabilities. In 2017, they launched a pilot on neurodiversity that hired and successfully integrated four people with autism into their Philadelphia practice. This will be followed in Dallas and San Diego. Laura Giovacco, Partner, is a board member of NOD.
- Steve is retiring this year and Kelly Grier will succeed him on July 1. At that time, EY will be the third Big 4 accounting firm to have a woman lead their US and Americas operations.
