Linking DEI and ESG interview series: Episode four – Building communities 

Author James Casey
August 14, 2022

At Frazer Jones, we try to empower every colleague to bring their true self to work, every day. 

And we want clients and candidates to experience that inclusiveness too. 

By educating ourselves and appreciating how different life experiences shape us, we’re in a stronger position to understand the professionals we work with beyond their profiles. 

As a recruitment company, we’re aware of the vital role we can play in creating a more diverse, inclusive and progressive future for workplaces of every shape and size. 

We’re also very conscious of the increasingly critical role that environmental, social, and governance (ESG) can play in not only making businesses better, but the world in which we all live in outside of work. 

As part of our efforts, James Casey spoke to five experts to get their opinion on different aspects of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and ESG.  

In this, our fourth episode of the series, we speak to Ana Billian, DE&I Lead at EY.
