Gabelli School Partners with the Chartered Accountants Worldwide Network USA

THE GABELLI SCHOOL OF BUSINESS recently partnered with the Chartered Accountants Worldwide (CAW) Network USA, the first regional network of the global organization. CAW Network USA is a nonprofit professional and educational organization that supports more than 7,000 Chartered Accountants who are living and working in the United States.

The Gabelli School is the only academic institution to join a select group of partners and sponsors from across the country and around the world that includes organizations such as: New York Welsh, St. George’s Society, Circular Economy; the Accounting Blockchain Coalition; AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants); NASBA (National Association of State Boards of Accountancy); IFAC (International Federation of Accountants); and PACE (Profitability Analytics Center of Excellence).

“The Gabelli School of Business is a thought leader in business and accounting education that truly promotes the value of ethics and best practices in an industry that is undergoing unprecedented change,” said David Powell, F.C.A., chief executive of CAW Network USA. “It is closely aligned with CAW Network USA’s mission, and we are looking forward to collaborating on a number of initiatives. Chartered Accountants have a key role in driving positive change and ensuring accountability to help the world towards a more sustainable and resilient future.”

Barbara M. Porco, PhD, clinical professor, associate dean of graduate studies, and director of the Center for Professional Accounting Practices at the Gabelli School, who was instrumental in brokering the partnership, said, “As an institution of higher learning that is fully focused on responsible and ethical business and accounting practices, we are thrilled to become a partner of the CAW Network USA, an organization that is doing so much to elevate the profile of the Chartered Accountant qualification in the United States.”

To celebrate the new partnership, the CAW Network USA hosted a networking event and panel discussion at Lincoln Center on Sept. 7, 2022.
