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.
Spotlight on Professional Resources
The AICPA’s National Commission on Diversity and Inclusion is encouraging the top 100 accounting firm CEOs to sign the CEO Action pledge!
This report is designed to create awareness about what state societies are doing regarding diversity and inclusion (D&I). The inventory breaks down state society program offerings as they relate to the following groups: ethnic minorities, women, LGBTQ, young professionals and retired CPAs.
The program allows participants to seek a mentor and/or mentee outside of their organization. Using an online platform makes a mentoring relationship easier to fit into busy schedules, creating beneficial and successful outcomes.
