Written on Jul 21, 2022

In this episode we're speaking with John Jones, president & CEO of Hope Toledo. Hope Toledo is a 501(c) 3 organization that helps children obtain high-quality early childhood education through Pre-K and post-secondary training in college or trade schools.

In 2020 Society President & CEO Scott Wiley, CAE, announced a three-part commitment to end racism and help create a business environment that offers equal opportunity to all. The plan consists of CEO leadership, organizational commitment – which includes a $100,000 pledge for initiatives – and advancing public policy. 

In continuation of that, The Board of Directors has approved a $20,000 investment in Hope Toledo as one of the organizations OSCPA is supporting in this commitment. 

We spoke with John about the Hope Toledo mission, upcoming initiatives, the difference that OSCPA’s investment will make and much more.
