Disability Support at EY Australia
Ability is an EY network for allies who support disability inclusion across the workplace and communities, those who care for a person with a disability and EY people living with a disability. It aims to elevate disability inclusion on all agendas and ensure accessibility at EY, recognising the contribution all EY people make to the working world.
EY is proud to be one of the 4% of organisations across the globe who include disability in the EY diversity agenda (World Economic Forum 2019) and one of the first companies to sign up to the Valuable 500.
In 2017, the first Accessibility and Inclusion Plan was launched, outlining the ongoing commitment to disability inclusion for EY people and clients; EY are making great inroads but acknowledge there is plenty to do and are silver members with the Australian Network on Disability to assist EY with this. Additionally, the very popular Auslan@EY classes are running in multiple cities to teach basic Australian Sign Language and disability awareness skills.
