Edelstein Hosts Second Firm-Wide Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Training
On Wednesday, October 20, 2021, Edelstein hosted our second firm-wide diversity, equity, and inclusion training, led by Jina Etienne, CPA, CGMA of Etienne Consulting. The presentation was titled, ‘The Authenticity Myth – Why It Takes Courage to Speak Up‘ and provided team members with strategies to be able to bring their “whole” self to the workplace. The training explained how firm values, company culture, and leadership contribute to team members being authentic. We thank the MassCPAs for their assistance in coordinating these trainings.

Edelstein has two more sessions scheduled and we look forward to continuing our education to become better allies. We recognize that there is more work to be done and our firm must demonstrate unequivocally a commitment to be part of the solution to this crisis. It starts with us taking specific steps in the fight against racism, discrimination, unconscious bias, and the other social injustices that have impacted our country.
