Women Business Enterprises Canada Council (WBE Canada) is thrilled to welcome Ernst & Young LLP (EY Canada) as its newest corporate member.
Working across assurance, consulting, law, strategy, tax and transactions, EY Canada teams ask better questions to find new answers for the complex issues facing our world today. EY Canada exists to build a better working world where economic growth is sustainable and inclusive. They are committed to the development and growth of diverse business enterprises and to expanding networks to build trusted and enriched relationships and look to their suppliers to have equivalent policies to promote diversity in their supply chains and purchase from diverse businesses.
As a corporate member, EY Canada will have access to the WBE Canada database of certified WBEs (Women Business Enterprises), which will provide potential candidates to EY Canada’s supplier diversity program. WBE Canada’s networking events and research and studies on Women Entrepreneurship in Canada will also be available to support EY Canada’s commitment to women entrepreneurs.
“Diversity, equity and inclusion are critical to fulfilling our purpose of building a better working world — they’re core to who we are and how we work,” said Tiki Cheung, Partner, Valuation, Modelling & Economics, and EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women™ Program Co-Leader at EY Canada. “Achieving real social and economic growth will only become reality once the Canadian business ecosystem is inclusive and reflective of our communities. In the past, WBE Canada entrepreneurs have participated in our EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women program. We’re excited to continue working with WBE Canada to help support the growth and success of women entrepreneurs, innovators and business owners. Collectively, we can open new doors, provide opportunities and accelerate momentum lost during the pandemic.”
“We are very excited to have EY Canada join WBE Canada’s growing list of corporate members,” said Silvia Pencak, President, WBE Canada. “EY Canada’s strong commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and sustainability has been demonstrated time and again and we are looking forward to not only the opportunities they will bring for our WBE community, but also to be able to work with EY Canada as we move supplier diversity forward in Canada.”
