The power of diversity and inclusion is real. I see the efforts and effects of D&I at EY every day. We are all shaped by our background and previous experiences and I want EY to be a place where everyone feels included and supported, so we can benefit from these different perspectives and experiences.
Personally, I’m very passionate about mental health and wellbeing. Creating an environment where our people feel they can talk openly and have the support required to maintain a healthy balance between work and their personal lives is a key focus for me. Amongst the wide range of programs we are running, I’m very proud of the work we are doing to encourage young Pasifika students to consider a career in professional services and our support of decile one primary school students with our homework club.
At EY, we are committed to building a better working world with increased trust and confidence in business, sustainable growth, development of talent in all its forms, and greater collaboration. We want to build a better working world through our own actions and by engaging with like-minded organisations and individuals.
This is our purpose — and why we exist as an organisation. Running through our organisation is a strong sense of obligation to serve a number of different stakeholders who count on us to deliver quality and excellence in everything we do. We want to use our global reach and scale to convene the conversation about the challenges facing economies and the capital markets. When business works better, the world works better.
