Diversity and inclusiveness are core to who we are and how we work. We hold a collective commitment to foster an environment where all differences are valued, practices are equitable and everyone experiences a sense of belonging – where people are inspired to team and lead inclusively in their interactions every day.
At EY, we believe in maximising the power of different perspectives and backgrounds in our teaming. Including varying points of view in our decision-making, operations and actions is fundamental to establishing long-term value for EY people, as well as long-term client, social and financial value. This helps us to fulfil the EY purpose of Building a Better Working World. Through this, we demonstrate our organisation’s distinctiveness, drive innovation, build trusted relationships, enable exceptional experiences for EY people and deliver the best approaches for clients. Diversity and inclusiveness are core to how we live our values.
Diversity is about differences. At EY, we think broadly about differences, such as nationality, cultural background, language, education, gender, ethnicity, generation, age, working and thinking styles, religious background, sexual orientation, abilities and disabilities, experiences, career paths and technical skills. Inclusiveness is about leveraging these differences to create an environment where all EY people feel, and are valued, for who they are, have a sense of belonging, and are inspired to contribute their personal best in every encounter.
