ICAS has published an action plan to identify and reduce the barriers faced by Black Chartered Accountants.
The plans form part of ICAS’ commitment as a signatory of the Charter for Black Talent in Finance and the Professions, which it signed up to earlier this year. ICAS is pledging to create an environment where Black CAs and CA Students can access support and guidance, develop to their full potential, and benefit from mentoring from other Black CAs.
ICAS CEO J Bruce Cartwright said: “It is vital we are open and transparent about the experiences of our Black Members, Students and staff. Understanding their personal experiences and outcomes will help us develop strategies to support their continued professional development and ensure they are able to reach their potential.”
