NABA enters strategic alliance with Diverse Organization of Firms

The National Association of Black Accountants has entered a strategic alliance with the Diverse Organization of Firms.

The goal of the partnership is to increase the representation of Black business leaders, entrepreneurs and financial services firm owners. The groups also hope to address structural obstacles in the corporate marketplace and increase the number of paths to Black business leadership and entrepreneurship with more innovative solutions.

The partnership will couple NABA’s 200,000 Black accounting, business and finance professionals with the DOF’s national network of over 300 Black CPA and financial services firm owners in order to give more Black entrepreneurs access to professional services from Black business leaders with expertise in accounting, business, finance, risk management, technology, cybersecurity, human capital and other advisory services.

“DOF has long served as a beacon of collaboration for Black-owned professional firms, and together we will accelerate our ability to increase global market share and opportunities for Black business leaders and owners,” said NABA board chair Herschel Frierson in a statement.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the rejoining of our two organizations, “said Odysseus Lanier, immediate past chair of the DOF, in a statement. “We are excited by the new strategic direction for NABA, and we know together we will solve complex problems related to Black-owned firms accessing opportunities in the global marketplace.”
