Diversity & Inclusion are essential elements of culture, which defines any organization. These are core pieces of the EY Vision 2020+ strategy. We know we can’t be successful unless our workforce is made up of diverse talent, and all EY people are fully involved and engaged. Our differences make us better. Leveraging our unique strengths and capabilities makes us stronger.
Around 1 billion people in the world have a disability, and 80% of people who experience a disability acquire it between the ages of 18 and 64 – the age range of our workforce. Our aim is to create a better working world, and this is why we are committing to the following areas of focus:
- Enabling EY people to proudly bring their authentic and full selves to work every day
- Delivering an inclusive employment journey for EY people – from how we recruit to how we develop, retain and promote
- Providing a more accessible workplace through accommodations and accessible technology and building design
- Equipping EY people with the skills and knowledge they need to be inclusive of people with disabilities
