Accounting CEOs joins CEOs from other sectors to commit to advance diversity

By Stephanie Wix

Two hundred and seventy CEOs from the accounting industry as well as other sectors have joined forces in a commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion is led by a committee of CEOs and leaders from Deloitte US, EY, KPMG, PwC and Accenture, among others, representing 70 industries across sport, business, as well as accounting. CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion was launched by 150 CEOs in June, and since then 100 additional CEOs have taken the pledge.

In addition to the Big Four, representing the accounting industry are also Crowe Horwath USA CEO Jim Powers has joined 270 CEOs and RSM USA CEO Joe Adams.

The companies shared 200 actions that are being taken to step towards that goal, exchanging tangible learning opportunities and creating collaborative conversations through the initiative’s hub CEOAction.com.

Powers said: “Leveraging the diversity of experiences, backgrounds and perspectives leads us to make better decisions, fuels innovation and creates an environment where our people feel a sense of belonging. We know that the tone from the top of the organization matters when trying to drive change.”
