FROM THE COMPANY

Our purpose —to build a better working world —defines everything we do. At EY, we believe an inclusive environment, where people from all backgrounds can experience a sense of belonging and achieve their full potential, is central to achieving our purpose. Our strategy is twofold.

First, we work to create an inclusive culture where all of our processes are equitable and our people are both equipped and expected to team and lead inclusively. Second, we provide equitable access to experiences and relationships, including opportunities to lead, mentor, sponsor and provide feedback, which enable advancement and contribute to successful careers.

We achieve all of this by holding our business leaders accountable, as evidenced in our US Executive Committee Board Diversity Statement, and by setting high expectations and measuring results.

A few highlights over the last year include:

  • Launch of three powerful, unscripted videos of EY colleagues sharing their experience of belonging at EY.
  • Leadership communications encouraging open, honest conversations with one another on matters important to each other, including the current social climate.
  • Conducted a survey of more than 1,000 employed adult Americans to better understand the current state of belonging within the workplace.
  • Raised awareness around transgender inclusion resources for all of our people including education toolkits and introduced the Pathways to Transition program, which offers US employees coverage of up to $25,000 for transition-related expenses not covered by their medical plan.
