Start Going Places: Minorities and the CPA Profession – Texlin Quinney
Why are there too few minorities in accounting? CPA Texlin Quinney of Robert Half Management Resources will give you three reasons: First, students learn too late that becoming an accountant is a career option. Second, people incorrectly perceive accountants as just number-crunchers. Third, she says there should be more minority mentors in accounting to coach students through the everyday challenges. By Texlin’s account, minority accountants can act as role models for students in order to bring more diversity into the profession and educate students about what’s possible.
