"DE&I in focus: Retaining diverse leaders"
The accounting profession must work persistently on its culture and continue developing its pipeline to address a lack of diversity in its leadership. That was the conclusion of a study of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the U.S. accounting profession conducted by The Institute of Management Accountants – with help from The Ohio Society of CPAs.
On this episode, Loreal Jiles, lead researcher on the study and IMA Director of Research, leads a conversation with Scott Wiley, president and CEO of The Ohio Society of CPAs; and Margaret Finley, OSCPA's diversity, equity and inclusion strategist.
They discuss the challenges that are preventing diverse accounting employees from advancing, how professional organizations can help and more.
