Assess the value of multiculturalism and diversity in a global environment.
Within the global environment there is much discussion regarding moving from US GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) to IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards). We know that corporations are global now more than ever which results in a diverse group of professional accountants worldwide working together for a common goal which is to report information for both internal and external users. This diversity does result in variations in practice however the principals and guiding rules and regulations proposed under IFRS will allow for uniformity on a global basis. This move to IFRS from GAAP is not yet finalized however much debated.
