Diversity and inclusion: closing the gap part 3 | FVS Section podcast

2 years ago · 31 min listen

Diversity and inclusion are key to future proofing our profession as well as our ABV and CFF specializations. As discussed in our last episode, a pathway towards a more inclusive workforce includes a focus on recruitment and retention. But how do we build the pipeline? How do we attract, retain and advance talent? High school programs need to build the pipeline, not only to the CPA, but also to the specializations, including CFFs and ABVs. University outreach programs need to build awareness of forensic and valuation career paths. CFF and ABV champions and mentor programs also help raise awareness and make connections. But what can these institutions and programs do to further diversity and inclusion?

Kelly Richmond Pope, Rumbi Petrozzello and Kirstine Connors discuss building a diverse pipeline to the FVS and ABV specializations.

In this episode, they discuss:

  • Kelly’s career journey to forensic accounting and her current projects and methods as a forensic accounting professor

  • Diversity and Inclusion Outreach Efforts to Students

  • Are organizations doing enough?

  • The power that media has on the profession

  • CPAs of color in families as an entry point

  • How has Kelly’s multi-media approach to learning inspired students

  • Why did Kelly choose to get her CPA and FVS specialization?
