7:00AM-7:50AM

With an increasing number of leading companies advancing people/talent initiatives as a key component of their competitive strategy, accounting firms need to consider how diversity & inclusion strategies, or the lack thereof, impact their ability to compete for new business.

This session will review the results of a new market study completed by Bloomberg BNA to understand the perception and reality of diversion & inclusion in the tax and accounting market from both sides of the equation – within Accounting Firms as well from the perspective of their corporate clients. Join this session to learn:

  • Do enterprise corporate decision-makers consider diversity & inclusion a priority when hiring an accounting firm?
  • The potential negative impact of the lack of diversity & inclusion initiatives in attracting top talent, in acquiring business from leading corporations, and more.
  • How Bloomberg BNA has benefited from developing a culture of diversity & inclusion and the impact it’s had on the organization and its extended ecosystem.

Join us to hear real-life examples and share best practices in this interactive session.
