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.

    Hispanic Heritage month is Sep 15 – Oct 15 

    Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15, the anniversary of independence for five Latin American countries—Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico declared its independence on September 16, and Chile on September 18. During this time, we recognize the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate their heritage and culture.

    The AICPA supports Latino/Hispanic students and professionals in the accounting profession through its partnership with ALPFA whose focus is to empower and develop Latino men and women as leaders in every sector of the global economy.
