Pro-Equity Anti-Racism (PEAR)

Executive Statement

The Washington State Board of Accountancy’s purpose is to promote the dependability of financial and other information used by providers of capital when assessing the status and performance of those seeking financial resources.

To accomplish our purpose, the agency is responsible for ensuring that credentialed persons are initially qualified, remain qualified, perform competently, and held publicly accountable for the quality of their professional services.

The Board of Accountancy is working to embed the Pro-Equity Anti-Racism (PEAR) framework outlined in Executive Order 22-04 in all agency decision making and actions.

We believe strongly in the Governor’s mission to create an anti-racist state where all are welcomed and have the opportunity to thrive regardless of race, ethnicity, creed, color, national origin, citizenship or immigration status, sex, honorably discharged veteran or military status, sexual orientation, or the presence of sensory, mental, or physical disability.

Our goal is to create a culture that centers pro-equity, racial justice, access, and belonging for all. We are committed to reframing our agency to work in a way that reduces disparities and improves equitable and just outcomes for everyone now and in the future.
