OSCPA understands the importance of a diverse and inclusive accounting profession, which is why we work to create opportunities for underrepresented students and professionals.  

Along with the programs we offer to help students find a love for and a place in the business world, we also support women’s initiatives, work in an ADA compliant office space and have a dedicated team working to find new ways to be inclusive every day.

But, this page isn’t for us — it’s for you! We’ve compiled a list of resources to assist you with growing your knowledge and/or your businesses’ diversity and inclusion efforts. 

If there’s a topic we’ve overlooked or a question you have regarding the D+I arena, feel free to reach out to Margaret Finley, OSCPA's diversity + inclusion strategist and consultant at mfinley@ohiocpa.com.
