Black CPA Centennial Virtual Celebration

Thank you for participating and helping to honor the past, celebrate the progress, and build on the future of the Black CPA community together. During the event, we heard from some of the first Black CPAs as they shared their stories of success against the odds and achievement in the face of adversity. In addition, we were inspired by the outstanding 40 Under 40 Black CPA Award recipients who are influencing the profession and unique programs that are making an impact in the community.

*Event proceeds and donations will go to the Black CPA Centennial Fund and support national scholarships and other programs dedicated to paving the way for Black individuals interested in pursuing the CPA credential. 



 

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the first Black CPA, this award has been established to continue to build upon progress made by recognizing young Black CPAs for influencing the profession, breaking barriers, and making an impact on the community.

We are proud to recognize 40 outstanding individuals with this special award.  They are active mentors and leaders, untiring advocates, driven changemakers, and an inspiration to others. They demonstrate determination, innovation, and a recognizable level of professional success. Building upon the leaders who paved the way for others, these 40 award recipients are serving their communities and advancing diversity in the profession.
