The AICPA presents the Journal of Accountancy podcast. Where we talk about the key issues facing the accounting profession.

    What you probably didn’t know about racism in the workplace

    What you probably didn’t know about racism in the workplace

    The culture of a workplace, be that in a company or an accounting firm, determines how employees and customers are treated, says Stephanie Creary, an identity and diversity scholar and professor of management at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. To assess how racism is a factor requires open, frank conversations and leaders willing to listen and learn what they probably didn’t know.

    What you’ll learn from this episode:

    - Starting conversations about racism with Black Lives Matter and police violence may not be the most effective thing to do.

    - An expert or coach can facilitate conversations about racism, help people work with their emotions, and create learning environments.

    - It’s necessary to customize diversity and inclusion training based on the roles and positions people hold in the organization.

    - Programs that succeed in recruiting and mentoring Black employees involve everybody in the organization.

    Recognizing and rooting out racism: Advice for leaders

    Recognizing and rooting out racism: Advice for leaders

    Laura Morgan Roberts, Ph.D., a professor at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business, is an editor of the recent book 'Race, Work, and Leadership: New Perspectives on the Black Experience'. She has studied race in the workplace extensively.

    With attention on racial disparities sparked by killings and then protests, the time is right for organizations to hear her message. Morgan Roberts shares insight on why some organizations and leaders resort to silence instead of speaking about racism, why it’s easier to talk about diversity and inclusion than about race, the qualities of an effective public statement, and what follow-through after the statement looks like.

Laura Roberts

Wow. This was a totally unexpected podcast. I found this to be one of the best discussions I have heard thus far on what is happening now and the issues surrounding our problems with race. I cannot wait to read more and I thank you very much for doing this.

Great Podcast Sharing Various Perspectives

I love that this podcast has presented high level global views around the accounting industry.

Examples of topics I’ve noticed include: hot technical topics; helping impact and engage the upcoming workforce through engagement with educators; new technologies-with implications for existing practices, and building the new generation workforce; hiring practices and skills tips from C-suite to new grads - from a national perspective; various perspectives and conversations surrounding soft skills, management skills, success, improvement solutions and national trends.

If you have a commute or enjoy podcasts while exercising, I recommend this podcast.

I also love that most podcasts are less than one hour, and the host is considerate and respectful of the planned time schedule.
