LGA has and always will be committed to the fair and equal treatment of all people. The lack of racial equality within our country heightens our responsibility to do more and to act swiftly. Here’s what we’re doing:
CEO Action: In recognition of the lack of diversity within the accounting profession, LGA signed the Diversity and Inclusion Pledge with CEO Action in 2019. We signed this pledge to take a proactive leadership role in changing the composition of our workforces within the accounting profession, and eventually, within organizations across the country and in all industries.
MSCPA/Bentley DE&I: LGA’s DE&I team is participating in a program sponsored by the MSCPA and Bentley University. We have begun working more closely with the colleges and universities that we recruit from, including their Deans, faculty and students, to develop alternate recruiting strategies to gain access to a more diverse student base from which to recruit from.
Nonprofit Contributions: LGA has committed to supporting organizations who fight for racial and social justice, including those organizations who focus on education and advocacy. LGA will be making systematic contributions to social justice organizations including The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. and The American Civil Liberties Union Foundation.
DE&I Training: LGA is conducting DE&I training for the entire firm, to do our part to spread education and to provide forums for others to get more involved. We continue to work with the MSCPA on how we as a firm and as a profession can be better and do more.
