Ensuring Our Seat at the Table
There is a vision... a vision of a future where there are "unlimited opportunities and growth for blacks in accounting and related business professions." As a nonprofit membership association, NABA is dedicated to bridging the opportunity gap for black professionals in the Accounting and Finance fields as well as related disciplines (i.e., Information Technology, Consulting, etc.).
The Gap is Real
According to the latest US Census, Blacks or African Americans make up 13.6% (42,020,743) of the total US population (308,745,538) but only 10.8% of the employed market and less than 9% of those classified as Accountants and Auditors. For Analysts and Financial Managers, it's closer to 7%.
Making a Difference
When NABA was founded in 1969, less that 1% of all CPA's in the US were black, so there have been tremendous strides in narrowing that gap over the last 46 years, but there is still much work to be done and the opportunities to make a difference are NOW.

I had the distinct pleasure of joining the NIKE HR/Recruitment team at their headquarters campus in Portland, Oregon, so I could experience for myself, their commitment to diversity and how NIKE differs from NABA's other Employers of Choice. Lots of employers claim diversity. Did NIKE feel like a diverse workplace?
More than 2,000 members, partners, and guests gathered at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas in June to for the organization's 44th Annual Convention under the theme "Connect. Collaborate. Cultivate. Bridging the Generational Divide."
Every year, NABA members and friends give back to the organization in support of our mission of discovering and sharing knowledge.
These annual gifts open doors of opportunity for our organization by providing student scholarships, enhancements to member programs, leadership training and other initiatives. Every gift makes a difference. When combined, the impact is immeasurable!
You can help open the doors of opportunity, and keep them open, for generations to come. Make your gift today at our secure website.
