Challenge + Initiative = Solution



“Enhancing diversity has become a business issue not just for the accounting profession but for many industries. The profession will need to be attractive to diverse talent in order to win its fair share of top students. Diverse clients and business associates will prefer to do business with organizations that are comprised of diverse professionals. Diverse talent is more likely to accept and stay in a job where they seed diversity.”

- “Helping CPAs Succeed Today and Tomorrow,” 2014 ICPAS Strategic Leadership Update.

“The mission of the Illinois CPA Society is ‘To enhance the value of the CPA profession’ through the strategic pillars of Advocacy, Education, Information, and Connections. Our commitment to helping to increase diversity in the accounting profession is a key component of our advocacy efforts on behalf of members.”
