Get to know us better through posts about our work, our passions and our culture.
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). Employees across all industries are encouraged to celebrate and learn more about the contributions of the disabled community to the workplace. This month also aims to educate business leaders and the public about the need for accommodations.
Our vision was to create an ecosystem where anyone in need of a critique outside of their engagement teams could have a place to share their work and receive high-quality feedback. We also wanted to make it easier for folks to learn about projects happening outside of their own engagements and offer their expertise and unique perspective. In doing so, we hoped to foster a culture of individual growth through team collaboration.
Our second issue of Studious celebrates the independence and the inter-dependence of our Design Studio locations across the Americas, and a feature on our growing Canadian team. Read about our innovation on a healthcare platform and a variety of updates from across our network. Artwork created by designer Diego Alba from our Charlotte studio.
We value diversity in all its forms.
Building a team of diverse thinkers with both different and complementary skill sets is challenging. We are constantly executing on our true diversity goal, which is building a place where user-centered professionals from different backgrounds and experiences are not only welcomed, but also thrive.
And, it should go without saying, but we’re committed to providing equal employment and advancement opportunities to everyone,
regardless of their race, color, ancestry, gender, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, veteran or any other legally protected status.
“Just like me” and hiring for “fit” are the enemy here. People who aren’t like us will “fit” just fine, because they’re great at the things we’re not. Diverse minds lead to diverse thinking. Diverse thinking leads to diverse problem solving.
The EY Design Studios are building something exciting — and bringing our collaborative model to engagements with some of the largest, fastest-growing and most compelling businesses in the world. Each studio has its own local vibe, but together we share a common goal of improving digital experiences. The perks aren’t too bad, either.
