AICPA director named one of "25 Influential Black Women in Business"


Kimberly Brown Drumgo, AICPA director–Diversity & Inclusion, was selected as one of The Network Journal’s (TNJ) “25 Influential Black Women in Business.”

The annual awards, presented by TNJ, a business news magazine for black professionals, honor women whose professional achievements have made a significant impact on an industry or profession and who also have made an important contribution to their community.

A judging committee selected this year’s 25 women out of hundreds of nominations of professionals and entrepreneurs. Honorees typically are business owners, partners, presidents, CEOs, board chairs, or other senior management executives with significant decision-making authority in the corporate, nonprofit (including academia and medicine), or government sectors.

The awards were presented at a luncheon in New York, and each honoree was to be featured in a profile in the March issue of TNJ.
