EY has appointed 68 equity partners to its UK business in the last year, including 39 new admissions announced this month, taking its total UK partners to 628.
Of the 68 partners appointed over the last year, 13 are women and eight are black and minority ethnic (BME) which takes the firm’s partner population to 17% female and 3% BME. Over 30% of EY’s leadership team are women.
Liz Bingham, managing partner for talent, UK & Ireland at EY [pictured] said: “While we are moving in the right direction to achieve our goal of a more diverse workforce, it is still clear that we must continue to keep diversity at the heart of our business in order to support the UK’s focus on this important issue. Diverse teams make better business decisions – it’s a commercial imperative.”
