Program to Advance More African-Americans to CPA


Set for June 28 – July 2 in Chantilly, VA;

All Firms Invited to Register Participants


Howard University School of Business Center for Accounting Education Holds

5th Annual “WeÂ’re About Success!” Program

to Help Young African-American Accountants Move Up



 -- Washington, D.C. - Howard University School of BusinessÂ’s Center for Accounting Education (CAE) will hold its fifth annual Ã‚“WeÂ’re About Success!” program to help young African-American accountants advance in their careers and prepare to earn their CPA earlier in their career.  Accounting firms from around the nation are invited to support their talented African-American young professionals, with one year or less experience, by registering them for this Program.


For a modest fee, young professionals beginning their careers will be immersed in a rich, four-day experience led and instructed by prominent educators and practitioners. The program will give them unparalleled exposure to invaluable expertise that can help them pass the CPA Exam.


“Accounting firms across the nation, eager to diversify their ranks, know they must make every effort to ensure that the talented minorities they hire will remain committed to the profession and passing the CPA exam,” said Frank Ross, director of the CAE. “Minorities have traditionally had a low rate of passing the exam and moving up the ladder to senior positions in accounting firms. The Ã‚‘WeÂ’re About Success!Â’ program is designed to increase the return on investment for accounting firms that have hired African-American associates and want to help them succeed.”


The Program consists of sessions like “Building Support & Alliances”, Ã‚“Career Ownership & Planning” and “Organizational Culture,” which are all designed to help young accountants make their mark and succeed in the workplace. There will also be a session entitled “CPA Exam Overview” which will focus on passing the CPA Exam.


This year, there will be three new sessions “Achieving Success in a Changing World,”  Ã‚“Uncovering Unconscious Bias” and “The Power of a Cohort” moderated by prominent representatives of participating accounting firms. 


For more information on the Ã‚“WeÂ’re About Success!” Program or about CAEÂ’s other programs for African-American accountants, please contact Pat Kellibrew, CAE Coordinator (pkellibrew@howard.edu).
