INCPAS DE&I Sponsorship Opportunities
For years, the CPA profession has worked on diversity, equity and inclusion issues with minimal progress. The Indiana CPA Society wanted to change this and took a different approach. INCPAS has brought firms, companies, colleges/universities, professional organizations and community partners together to make a profession-wide commitment to increase diversity in the CPA profession. Through program like the INCPAS Scholars program, the Society is seeing tangible change: we are building bridges to the profession.
Your support is essential. Through sponsorship, volunteer efforts and a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, the CPA profession will better reflect the demographics of Indiana and the corresponding needs of the profession.
