I am so excited to have Dawne Troupe as our guest - Dawne is a native New Yorker and She is a big believer in promoting equity and diversity within communities in New York state and across the country.

As accounting and finance professionals, There are a lot of values we bring to businesses and individuals; but there are actually a lot more we can do to help make the world a better place through community outreach and professional development. Many organizations across the world have seen the valuable impact and benefits of community service—particularly during the time of a global pandemic.

Community outreach isn't just for nonprofits for charities; for-profit organizations can also play a huge role in changing lives for team members. And young people - whether you are accounting and finance students or young professionals, what better and practical way to be able to apply your learning and knowledge to help improve the financial literacy of teens, parents, and business owners in your communities while getting real-world experience advising clients with all types of needs.
