Accounting Career Awareness Program Workshop Recap!


On July 18, 2018, NABA Metro DC member Andrea Smith led a half day workshop for the National Association of Black Accountants, Inc. Accounting Career Awareness Program (ACAP) at Howard University. The primary objective of ACAP is to increase the understanding of accounting and business career opportunities among high school students from underrepresented ethnic groups. 

The highlight of the workshop was the Accounting Career Panel, led by Dominique Charles, Nikki Akinyeye, Dontrell Smith, and Rudolph Graham, who were asked to lead this session because they were all once in the students' shoes as high school participants in the program and could best share their academic and career journey.
