During annual performance review meetings—called Roundtables—each Ernst & Young business unit across the United States and Canada provides an Inclusiveness Roundtable Champion (IRC). IRCs actively participate in Roundtable discussions to focus the discussion on actual performance and objective business criteria, listen for and redirect discussions that do not relate to objective business criteria, and assist in the formulation of actionable development plans for women and minority staff.
