“Recent events in the US have turned a spotlight on diversity, equity and inclusion and the need for better education, awareness and cultural change across business and society,” said Johnson. “Our goal is to not just talk about the DE&I issues and problems our profession is facing, but to be part of the solution—to actually do something and effect real change—so that the future of our accounting profession is sustainable as well as diverse, equitable and inclusive.”
The commission was developed as part of CalCPA’s 90-day plan to catalyze efforts to solve DE&I challenges in the accounting profession in California, including attracting and retaining marginalized groups in public accounting and industry.
“Forming the commission is just a first step for CalCPA,” said Monterio. “We are planning to be part of real DE&I solutions that drive change. For example, we are undertaking multi-phase research with our partner, the Institute of Management Accountants, on race and ethnicity, gender, orientation and diversity of thought that relate to recruitment and retention of underrepresented groups in the accounting profession. We plan to use the results and insights from this research to provide guidance and resources to CPAs and the businesses that hire them.”
“Following good diversity, equity and inclusion practices is not just the right thing to do, it makes good business sense too—the future sustainability of our profession depends on it,” added Johnson.
