Ernst & Young has been holding a conference in New York this week to attract ethnically diverse college students to the tax profession.

The Discover Tax conference attracted 100 sophomores, juniors and seniors from more than 50 college campuses across the U.S. Students participating in the program have an average grade point average of 3.5 or higher, expressed interest in the accounting or tax profession and came recommended by their college professors. Eighty percent of the students are black or Hispanic. Following the conference, all the attendees will be eligible to interview for internships with Ernst & Young.
