The Black Accountants Talent Network (BATN) today announced a $500 pledge in support of the Pennsylvania CPA Foundation Scholarship Fund to further the (BATN) mission to provide opportunities of learning, growth and development for Black people.
The scholarship fund awarded $145,000 in 2020 and is on track to award $200,000 in scholarships in 2021.
As a scholarship recipient of this same fund while a student at Temple University, Isaiah E. Bailey, (BATN) Founder, could not resist the mandate to support the next generation of Black leaders.
Please join us in donating to the scholarship fund.
The mission of the network is to provide a platform for learning, guidance and growth while creating equal and diverse opportunities in the accounting profession for Black people. Learning and development, networking, mentoring and collaboration serve at the heart of everything we strive to accomplish. Together we can move mountains and forge new paths ahead.
With more than 20,000 members, the PICPA supports CPAs and future CPAs by providing education, networking, leadership, and volunteer opportunities. The PICPA offers thousands of continuing professional education (CPE) programs annually, as well as social programs throughout 11 chapters across the state of Pennsylvania.
