Diversity and Inclusion

The AICPA works to encourage and promote diversity & inclusion within the CPA profession and its workforce, as we believe a workplace that is reflective and inclusive of the global communities in which they serve - different people, different cultures, and different perspectives – are greatly positioned to innovatively solve the challenging and complex issues facing clients and the evolving public interest.
