Supporting RSM's African American and black professionals


AACE enhances and nurtures an environment that supports RSM’s African American professionals in their pursuit of professional excellence. It helps raise diversity awareness and inclusiveness between leaders and colleagues.

All AACE members have access to firm-paid professional membership in the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA). Through local, regional and national NABA events, AACE members have the opportunity to network, share with colleagues in the profession and foster relationships that provide opportunities for business development.

RSM is a top sponsor at NABA’s annual convention and sends a team of RSM ambassadors to the event for networking, education and recruiting. Watch the 2019 NABA videos here.
