In his role of Managing Partner, Omar has made the establishment of a truly inclusive culture the number one priority for EY. As part of this focus, Omar has put gender equality at the forefront of UK firm’s agenda, and set the ambitious target of achieving 30% female partners and 50% female graduate recruitment. In the last few years EY FS has launched various programmes to support women (and BME talent) in the workplace, such as the launch of EY’s Return to Work, EY Reconnect, and Career Watch, aimed at female and BME Managers.
