The Big Picture


The Ohio Society of CPAs believes that a diverse and inclusive workplace yields better business decisions and makes our organizations stronger. That’s why we’re dedicating leadership, time and resources toward being a D+I influencer in Ohio. We are helping organizations create strategic plans to move D+I from theory to action and measure intended outcomes as we go.

If you have questions regarding the D+I arena, please reach out to Margaret D. Finley, OSCPA's diversity and inclusion strategist at Learn more about Margaret here.


Diversity and Inclusion: Crossing Bridges Series

Our Commitment

OSCPA models inclusion and embraces the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of those with whom we work and exist to serve. To advance the state of business in Ohio, OSCPA is working to redefine the path to the accounting profession, increase the diversity of its workforce, and encourage organizations to implement strategies for enhancing inclusiveness in the workplace. We also seek to advance the D+I mindset within the profession and the businesses it serves by creating a safe space for such conversations and strategies to flourish and grow. 

OSCPA is providing D+I leadership where it is needed in The Ohio Society's governance, membership, operations and programs, with a goal to deliver culturally effective service and value to all members and stakeholders who look to us for leadership and support.
