MMB Diversity & Inclusion Committee
Mission: We want to help grow and sustain a diverse and inclusive work environment that reflects the communities we come from, the clients we serve, and the growth needed in our industry.
- Education: Educate our employees on past and current issues. This includes a quarterly newsletter that highlights diversity in the accounting profession as well as in our community. This also includes formal trainings such as an unconscious bias training, so that we as a firm can identify and address hidden biases that can influence workplace decisions.
- Recruitment: As a firm, continue to support World of Accounting (WOA) and Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession (COAP) as these programs introduce accounting to minority students while also promoting our firm. Committee members will also be present during other firm recruitment events to help highlight the diversity we have at MMB.
- Community Service: In addition to Day of Caring, we plan to participate in community fundraising and school events that will provide an opportunity to introduce students to the accounting profession.
- Scholarship: The MMB Accounting Diversity Scholarship was created to provide financial assistance to minority students seeking to pursue a career in accounting, as this field has been historically underrepresented by the minority community.
The MMB Accounting Diversity Scholarship was created to provide financial assistance to minority students seeking to pursue a career in accounting, as this field has been historically underrepresented by the minority community. We want to help change those statistics and help students work towards their dreams.
MMB will award two, annually renewable $2,000 per-year scholarships, as well as an opportunity to receive a paid accounting internship during the student’s junior or senior year of college. The scholarship can be renewed up to five years, with a maximum total award of $10,000 per recipient.
