The Virginia Society of CPAs, in recognition of Virginia CPA Week, Sept. 20–26, donated 1,000 copies of a children’s picture book “When I Grow Up I Want to Be … An Accountant” to local elementary schools, libraries, community centers and other organizations statewide.

Penned by Dr. Adrian Mayse, chair of accounting at Howard University and a member of the National Association of Black Accountants, the book looks to introduce diverse children to the accounting world.

“Promoting the possibilities of a career in accounting to elementary students is a wonderful way to celebrate Virginia CPA Week this year,” said VSCPA president and CEO Stephanie Peters in a statement. “It’s crucial that we encourage students to consider the immense doors accounting can open, and as part of our focus on diversity, equity and inclusion, we also want to help increase the number of minority students who choose to pursue accounting and the CPA designation.”
