"STEPtember has been such a great success at EY as it gave Ability Network a fun and purposeful challenge to connect with our staff. STEPtember created a high level of engagement and competition across our many teams thoughout the world all while giving back and helping support people living with cerebral palsy. This made a 'STEP' change in our diversity and inclusion program throughout 2020 and 2021, years when we were most in need of connection, teamwork and wellbeing. Thank you to the team at CPA for their profressionalism, support and dedication in making this fundraising campaign a great success."
