Marriage Equality Pledge
On 26 May 2015, EY’s Oceania CEO and Regional Managing Partner Tony Johnson signed the Marriage Equality Pledge on behalf of EY Australia. This pledge is run by the Australian Marriage Equality organisation – a national body working for equal marriage through lobbying, advocacy and education.
Tony says, “In signing this pledge, EY Australia proudly recognises the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people to experience the same freedoms as others, including with whom they choose to make a commitment of love and marriage.”
Accessibility and Inclusion Plan
We were proud to launch our first Accessibility and Inclusion Plan (AIP) in November 2017, outlining our ongoing commitment to Disability Inclusion for our people and our clients. This plan will be in place for three years to 2020 and covers recruitment, career development, accessible workplace, communication, leadership and the community. An accessible version of this plan is available here: www.ey.com/au/Accessibility
