On Friday, June 9, EY hosted an Employee/Business Resource Group Leaders’ Summit at the National Association for Black Accountants (NABA) annual conference in New Orleans. The forum was led by the firm’s Black Professional Network. The firm’s vision for this forum was to support and enhance the dialogue around the value of resource groups to a business, its members and building a better working world.
Chris Crespo, EY Director, Diversity and Inclusiveness, kicked off the interactive session and gave background on the forum. The firm started the forum two years ago and included a few of its clients. A discussion ensued on how the companies could work with each other and learn from each other. The session went well and everyone walked away wanting more, suggesting that EY should do it again.
