Gender Equality at EY Australia
The EY Gender Inclusion Network is for EY people of all genders and provides opportunities for members to learn and expand their networks by bringing everyone into the conversation to share different perspectives on gender in the workplace.
EY offers the opportunity to take paid parental leave on a part-time/flexible basis in order to facilitate more male employees to access their leave. Parental Leave is also available to care for a new child through adoption, surrogacy arrangement, long term or permanent foster care, Home for Life, Whāngai, grandparents with full-time care and kinship for Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. All parents are supported through the transition to parenthood and return-to-work process, through access to mentoring and a digital coaching platform.
EY has been recognised by Work180 as the #1 place for women to work as a result of their 2023 Equity Audit. Participating employers were measured against 10 key standards to drive gender equity in the workplace, including inclusive hiring practices, representative leadership, employee voice, career development, and pay equity. EY also took home the Work180 Career Development Award (Enterprise Category), largely for our work on Rediscover and Reconnect (for parents returning to work following a significant career break), Accelerate (for women on the path to Partner), and our market-leading paid parental leave and family violence support.
