PWC Pursues Future Racial Inclusion through Accounting Careers Institute

PriceWaterhouseCoopers is holding an Accounting Careers Leadership Seminar for black and Hispanic high school students June 18-23 at Bryant College in Rhode Island. Qualifying students, juniors from the Northeast who have completed Algebra II and have a GPA of at least 2.7, will be immersed in a program of case studies and role-playing exercises with PWC professional accountants. Dr. Roohani of Bryant says that the program gives students an opportunity to learn about the exciting opportunities that accounting offers.

Given the paucity of African-American and Hispanic CPAs at present, PWC is to be highly lauded for this effort as an influx of racial diversity is likely to add richness to the profession. I encourage PWC to extend this program to other parts of the country as well.
