ATLANTA, GEORGIA  June 30, 2022 — Allinial Global is pleased to announce that it has won the Diversity and Inclusion Initiative of the Year award at the 2022 International Accounting Forum & Awards program (previously the Digital Accountancy Forum & Awards program).

Every year The Accountant and International Accounting Bulletin organize a panel of independent judges to review contestants in 16 award categories that celebrate excellence, innovation, and thought leadership in global accountancy. This year’s finalists and winners were announced at a gala celebration at the Waldorf Hilton in London on June 29, 2022.

The Diversity and Inclusion Initiative of the Year award celebrates the success of an association that has raised the bar on selection and hiring based on principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

“Advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion, both within the association itself and for the accounting profession as a whole, continues to be a top priority at Allinial Global.
