EY Gift is Making an Impact

By Phoebe M. Brannock ’18

William & Mary’s Raymond A. Mason School of Business has launched several diversity initiatives since announcing the Ernst & Young (EY) LLP’s $1 million commitment last fall. The gift, which was given by the EY Foundation and William & Mary alumni who work there, advances the university’s efforts to increase diversity and inclusion among its students, faculty and staff.

“The gift is supporting four related initiatives: recruiting more diverse students into the business school, providing a foundation for diversity and inclusion to all undergraduates entering the Mason School through course work, supporting faculty initiatives to promote these principles in subsequent classes and funding a campus-wide diversity symposium,” said Jeanne Wilson, Brooks George Term Professor. “All four of these initiatives are well underway.”
