At EY we value and respect individual difference. Today, we think broadly about differences; they include background, education, gender, ethnicity, nationality, generation, age, working and thinking styles, religious background, sexual orientation, ability and technical skills. We focus strongly on inclusiveness in each level throughout the firm as a fundamental part of our business strategy. Inclusiveness is about leveraging these differences to achieve better business results. Particularly, given that the future of our business depends heavily on our ability to provide solid and innovative solutions for our clients, we can only do so by acknowledging and sharing the most diverse range of thoughts, experiences and skills of our people.

Our multicultural and multidisciplinary working environment creates the right platform to harness different perspectives and expertise which are greatly valued and properly rewarded. As such, we are able to create the highest-performing teams and build trust and confidence in the solutions we deliver to our clients. We are fully committed to consistently developing our diverse talent and ensure people of all abilities are included.

As a significant global organization, EY has the potential to bring about considerable positive change through our capabilities, our people and our influence. EY Ripples is EY’s new global corporate responsibility (CR) program that provides our people the opportunity to positively impact the lives of millions of individuals by using their skills, knowledge and experience.

EY Ripples focuses on two key areas: Supporting the next generation to develop the mindset and transferable skills they need most to find and sustain meaningful work in a transformative age and working with impact entrepreneurs helping scale small and growing businesses that are driving progress to tackle inequality and empower people to change their lives.

Women make up more than half the population of the world, yet have long been overlooked as a vital talent resource that contributes to economic growth and prosperity. Despite evidence that companies with women directors have better business outcomes, women remain under-represented on boards of directors and in the C-suite. Women. Fast forward is EY’s global platform supporting our interactions and discussions with clients, policy makers, key decision makers and other thought leaders on women’s economic empowerment and gender equity. By working with organizations – from schools to governments, from start-ups to international corporations – we provide women the tools to access and seize opportunities in the rapidly changing world.

EY Cyprus regularly undertakes various corporate responsibility initiatives. Our two biggest programs are:

  • Women Fit 4 Business – An intensive 8-month program targeting young, unemployed, female university graduates, under the age of 35. It aims to help provide them with the necessary hard and soft skills to enter or re-enter the labour market and/or start their own business.
  • Cyprus Seeds - A non-for-profit initiative to support the commercialization of innovative academic research in Cypriot universities and research institutions by providing grants, one-to-one mentoring combined with entrepreneurial training and networking outside Cyprus, in order to help research projects mature to a stage that can attract venture capital and funding from private investors.
