Students reestablish accounting organization on campus

first_img“The black community at USC here is just so small, and I feel like because it’s so small, we have a really hard time interacting with each other and getting together,” Wesamba said. “It’s really important that we have spaces where we can discuss what it means to be a minority in a predominately white field.” NABA president Paul Adams II, a junior majoring in accounting and computer science, said that even though undergraduates serve on the executive board, the organization was originally restarted by a group of graduate students. Elsie Wesamba, NABA’s vice president, said she was inspired to join the organization after speaking to her academic adviser. “I joined NABA because I wanted to be apart of a community that not only uplifted me in my future career but would also help other students excel in their careers,” Hagos, a junior majoring in accounting, said. “NABA’s goal is to reduce the gap of minorities in accounting or related fields. It provides minorities access to many scholarships and networking opportunities in order to bridge the gap visible in the accounting profession.” This story is part of the Daily Trojan’s special coverage for Black History Month. It will run periodically throughout February. “My adviser recommended that I help restart the organization, and I decided that this is what I wanted to put all my time in,” said Wesamba, a freshman majoring in accounting. “I love the idea of the community and how it connects to something that I’m interested in.” Esquerre, a freshman majoring in business administration, said that NABA hopes to establish ties with the local community by engaging in outreach with nearby schools. “I was looking for something to take initiative at USC, and it’s not that I wanted to start my own organization, but I wanted to be a part of something I really cared about and could put all my time into,” Wesamba said.    “We’re hopefully going to do some volunteering and high school programs to get other students that are younger than us interested in [NABA] because we really need more diverse perspectives in this field,” Esquerre said.   Though the USC chapter is still in its beginning stages of development, Wesamba remains optimistic for the future and said the board is planning to make an impact in Leventhal. Firdaws Hagosm, NABA’s treasurer, believes that the organization has the ability to encourage underrepresented Marshall and Leventhal students to pursue their professional goals. “Originally [NABA] was brought back by grad students, however according to USC rules grad students could not be on the e-board, so the undergraduates got to start it,” Adams said. Adams said the organization is hosting a major event panel on campus Feb. 21 with all four U.S.-based major accounting firms to encourage students of color in the field. According to the national organization’s website, less than 9 percent of accountants are black, a statistic NABA hopes to change. “[The] main goal is to bridge the opportunity gap between black professionals,” said Emmy Esquerre, NABA’s public relations chair. “[NABA] offers networking opportunities, scholarships and they hold national conventions.” “Our goal is to get it started again,” Wesamba said. “Like have it be an organization that has members and events … because we are still in our very early stages.”    “Because I’m a part of NABA, I get to meet so many people who are the same as me and from minority backgrounds,” Wesamba said. A small group of students at the Leventhal School of Accounting has reestablished the USC chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants to promote representation for accounting students of color. The organization was officially recognized by the University this semester after disbanding due to lack of leadership, organization and interest in 2014. According to Marshall’s school profile, black students comprise 3 percent of the school’s undergraduate population, and NABA is a way to connect members of the black community.

Magubane’s photographs of that day brought him much international recognition andacclaim. But more importantly, he feels, they told the world “what kind of animal apartheid was”.Magubane began his career as a photographer at Drum magazine in 1955, covering an ANC convention with a borrowed camera. After that, he says, he “never looked back”.#ICP50 PeterMagubane: Eyewitness to the Ruthless Era of Apartheid?

Microsoft & Nokia: Not Just Office, It’s the Whole Mobile Enterprise

first_imgRelated Posts Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Yesterday news broke that Microsoft and Nokia were announcing a partnership that would take Office outside of Windows Mobile for the first time. But after today’s press conference, it’s clear that this isn’t just Word, Excel, and PowerPoint slapped onto Nokia smartphones: the world’s largest cellphone maker will now support a whole slew of key enterprise software from Microsoft.“This is much more than putting Microsoft Office on Nokia smartphones,” said Nokia Devices executive vice president Kai Öistämö. In fact, Office won’t even be the first move in this new alliance. Next year Nokia ESeries smartphones will start by including Windows Office Communicator Mobile, which is basically a contacts system. Later additions will be Office, SharePoint access, and Microsoft System Center. Is Windows Mobile Dead?Other than Apple questions, the first thing to come up this morning was what the future holds for Windows Mobile in a world where Nokia and Microsoft are partners. Until today there’s been more than a small amount of competition between the two companies on that front.Both Elop and other Microsoft representatives have said that Microsoft will still be throwing its full support behind Windows Mobile, with a release of Office Mobile scheduled for next year as well. Despite statements to the contrary, it’s clear that this move is an admission, even if it’s implicit, that Windows Mobile hasn’t shown the success in mobile productivity that Microsoft has hoped for. A Full Business Suite for MobileToday’s conference was with Öistämö from Nokia and Stephen Elop, President of Microsoft’s business division, and both executives emphasized that the new alliance was aimed at the enterprise market. Despite rumors to the contrary this week, Nokia confirmed that they’re sticking with Symbian while they bring the software to their ESeries devices.The first service to appear next year will be Microsoft’s Communicator, with full Office support later in the release cycle. Next up will be SharePoint and System Center, an IT infrastructure product. Is the iPhone Next?Tomorrow the Mac Business Unit of Microsoft has a somewhat mysterious news conference scheduled, and the speculation has begun. Now that the dam has broken on Microsoft software moving outside Windows Mobile, some have wondered if the iPhone was next. One additional tidbit we gleaned from Microsoft representatives after the press conference this morning was that this was “Office related” and clearly for Mac, but it’s “not related to mobility”. In other words, no Microsoft App Store or Office for the iPhone will be appearing, at least tomorrow.

Solar Living Institute’s Green Collar Juggernaut

first_imgThis is a busy time for those in the green-job education business, whether they offer green-career guidance seminars, technical training programs, certification prep classes, or a combination of related services.And it is going to get busier. A story recently published by general-interest magazine Suite focused on a green-jobs training program designed for at-risk youths in Richmond, California. The program is co-presented four times a year by Solar Richmond, a training program; Grid Alternatives, which provides solar installation services for low-income households; RichmondBUILD, a training and job placement program; and Solar Living Institute, a nonprofit that provides green-career guidance seminars and technical workshops in several ecological disciplines.Responding to the marketBut the article also highlights how Solar Living Institute – established in 1996 by John Schaeffer, founder of green-products retailer Real Goods, and based in Hopland, California – could face substantially growing demand for its technical training services. Suite 101 cites University of California at Berkeley estimates that the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 will by itself lead to the creation of 83,000 green jobs by 2010.SLI’s most popular workshops at the moment are those focused on solar technology, although Orion Walker, the organization’s green career programs and events manager, told GBA that SLI is looking to add training programs focused on weatherization and other structural improvements that can boost energy efficiency in existing and future buildings.SLI is of course also looking for ways to participate in enterprises driven by the economic stimulus plan. One project of that nature already in the offing, Walker says, will involve a partnership with another organization (SLI is not yet at liberty to disclose its name) that will require the organization to provide custom green-tech training to electricians and other types of contractors.Because it is still early in the stimulus rollout, though, SLI is staying alert to further opportunities. “We’re like everybody else, scrambling to figure out where they are and how to apply for them,” Walker says.last_img read more
