(BATN) Announces Collaboration with PICPA to Create New Content for Virtual Accounting Career Day Platform
New York, NY - 14 January 2021
The Black Accountants Talent Network (BATN) today announced a collaboration with the Pennsylvania Institute of CPAs (PICPA) to curate new and invigorating content for the Pennsylvania CPA Foundation's Virtual Accounting Career Day platform.
The virtual platform is a free experience for students, professionals and teachers to learn more about diverse career opportunities in the accounting profession and the advantages of the CPA designation.
The virtual experience showcases diverse CPA professionals and highlights their individual career paths with the goal of promoting the CPA credential and exposing students to the many directions a career in accounting can lead.
The platform currently features eight senior leaders within the CPA profession along with sixteen virtual college experiences for students and will soon feature Isaiah E. Bailey, (BATN) Founder and member of the PICPA Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Board.
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. There are also opportunities for career growth through involvement in state or local committees, speaking to the media or public groups, authoring articles, and much more.
