Our hearts and spirits are heavy as we grieve the senseless killings around the country due to racism, ignorance, and hate. While we have remained quiet for some time, we wanted to show our member firms that we have not just words about the Black Lives Matter movement, but actions through support of our firms.
CPAmerica has formed a committee of four employees to begin the process of learning what the association can and should do for its member firms. We have met and begun the conversation expressing our own feelings, changes to our operations, being an advisor to management, and exploring development of resources for our firms. We have surveyed our firms’ leadership and will be developing offerings and sharing opportunities within the direction provided.
CPAmerica is committed to helping our firms in learning, listening, and growing. We will continue to develop programs and actions that show that racism and racial prejudices have no place in the accounting profession.
