Moving the Needle. Leading the Charge...DFW Accounting Legends Scholarship Initiative

DID YOU KNOW?

The accounting field is one of the least diverse careers in America.


According to a 2019 report by the Association of International Certified Public Accountants just 2% of certified public accountants identify as Black, while 84% of CPAs identify as white.


Additionally, according to the 2021 AICPA Trends report, professional accounting staff at United States firms are 62% white, 24% Asian or Pacific Islander, 7% Hispanic/Latino and 5% Black, compared to the general population of 75% white, 18% Hispanic/Latino, 13.6% Black, 6.4% Asian/Pacific Islander and 18 percent Hispanic/Latino.


Well...in true Chuck Burch Fashion, he decided to do something about it. Last Saturday night at his annual "DFW Legends of Accounting' social event Chuck revealed his desire to support financially students who aspire to follow him and the other long-tenured professionals in attendance (or virtual via streaming live) into the world of accounting. The DFW Accounting Legends Scholarship initiative was launched providing another avenue for the Chuck Burch Scholarship fund to make a difference. There will be many more announcements and updates to come, but if you know Chuck, then you know this will be powerful and potentially life changing. And of course you can start donating to the fund now!! Reach out to Chuck directly and he will be more than happy to guide your steps as you help him build a foundation for the next generation of accounting professionals from the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
