One on One With RSM's Candice Eaton-Gaul

2020 was a challenging year on many fronts. The coronavirus pandemic crisis took a back seat in the news cycle over the summer as the U.S. faced a generational reckoning on systemic racism and the many ways the status quo is unfair, or even dangerous, to communities of color.

Consulting recently caught up with Eaton-Gaul to talk about her new role, the importance of diversity and inclusion in the profession, and how companies are working to right past wrongs and create a more equitable future for all.
