EY New Zealand

We believe accelerating women’s advancement is not just a fairness argument; it’s also an economic imperative that creates higher growth, increased prosperity and stronger communities.

Women remain under-represented on boards of directors and in the C-suite, despite evidence that companies with women directors have better business outcomes. We’re accelerating the conversation about how – and why – to get more women into leadership roles.

To accelerate growth, we’ll need to harness the potential of women entrepreneurs worldwide. Our programmes empower women entrepreneurs to think bigger, gain access to capital, learn from their peers and find seasoned advisors. These connections help their companies scale, increasing employment and prosperity.

Research shows a direct correlation between girls’ participation in sports and their success in higher education and employment. We’re using our experience to harness the often-untapped leadership potential of elite women athletes, because we believe that many of tomorrow’s business leaders are today’s young athletes.
