Iowa Chapter Of CPAs Reading Books To Davenport Kids
On Friday, January 21, 2022, the Iowa Chapter of Certified Public Accountants is personally donating a new book to several first-grade classrooms in the Davenport Community School District. Local CPAs will be reading, “When I Grow Up I Want to Be An Accountant,” by Dr. Adrian L. Mayse, CPA, to these first graders.
The goal of this book donation is to educate young students about the accounting profession and encourage minority students, specifically, to consider learning more about this field. Currently, less than one percent of CPAs in Iowa are African American. The Iowa Chapter of CPAs is focusing on several ways to promote the profession to different age groups, as it’s concerned with the lack of diversity in the accounting profession.
Book readings are happening at McKinley, Truman and Garfield Elementary Schools.
