NJCPA seeks nominations for 2017 'Diversity and Inclusion' award
The award looks to highlight diverse CPAs; the people who hire, retain, or promote them; and those who have advocated for diverse leadership in the profession.
Non-CPAs and nonmembers of the NJCPA are eligible for the award, as long as they are employed by a company, CPA firm, nonprofit, government office, or are within academia with at least one NJCPA member.
The NJCPA seeks candidates who excel in at least two of the following traits:
- Influences others
- Serves as a role model
- Cultivates diverse teams
- Innovates and takes risks
- External leadership involvement
Achievements from the last two years are encouraged. Candidates may nominate themselves or multiple individuals, with all staff levels invited to apply.
Winners will be selected by a panel of volunteers from the NJCPA. Winners will be announced on June 15 at the NJCPA Convention & Expo at the Borgata in Atlantic City and the NJCPA website. Winners will also be featured in the September/October 2017 issue of New Jersey CPA magazine.
