Diversity and Inclusion

The AICPA & CIMA works to encourage and promote diversity, equity, & inclusion within the accounting and finance profession and its workforce, as we believe a workplace that is reflective and inclusive of the global communities in which they serve - different people, different cultures, and different perspectives – is greatly positioned to innovatively solve the challenging and complex issues facing clients and the evolving public interest.

2022 Diversity Holidays

The world is rich with diversity, which is reflected in the observances celebrated by various cultures and populations. Knowledge of the following short list of diversity holidays and celebrations can enhance your workplace diversity and inclusion efforts.

Is Everyone Present and Accounted For?

Did you know that minorities only represent 14 percent of the CPA Profession? And we are missing out. From rapidly shifting demographics and buying power to recruiting and retaining the best talent, the business case for increasing diversity and inclusion is crystal clear.


AICPA provides regular webcasts that highlight diversity and inclusion best practices and feature renowned speakers who are experts in their fields.
