Diversity in accounting

  • Article

“Never underestimate your ability to have influence.”

This week our host Stuart Pedley Smith, Head of learning here at Kaplan, explores the topic of diversity within the accountancy profession.

Kaplan’s learn better podcast covers topical subjects to support our past, present and future learners to succeed in both their studies and careers.

Guest Alice Olafare, Co-found of New Gen Accountants (NGA), shares her experiences and what led her to co-founding the NGA community initiative. She discusses the challenges diverse candidates may face, the resources they can lean on for support, and the benefits of a diverse workforce for everyone.

Together Stuart and Alice explore what diversity is, why it is important within the accounting profession, and how to champion it and give longevity to the movements that have taken place over the past year.

Make it a movement, not a moment.
