About the event:

In every industry, accountants play a vital role in the operations of organizations and companies across sectors and settings. The field of accounting offers many opportunities for internationally trained immigrants and refugees to build a career, both with and without a CPA license.

In this webinar, you will hear from two accountants on their professional journey in the U.S. Our first presenter, Alpha Sow shares key lessons on career advancement, drawing from his experience working with local and national non-profit organizations. Jenny Herrera, CPA, CGMA, our second presenter, offers insights on creating a career as a CPA specialized in public accounting and discusses the work of the Association for International Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) as a valuable resource for internationally trained accounting professionals.
