Deloitte Barbados is the first corporate citizen to support a project spearheaded by the Accounting Students’ Association of the University of the West Indies, Cave-Hill Campus, to improve the outdoor seating accommodation for students there.
Deloitte sponsored several benches, located outside the administrative building and the areas adjacent to the accounting classes.
In making the presentation to the association, Director of Talent and Operations for Deloitte in the Caribbean and Bermuda, Dee Schneider, and Partner (Deloitte Barbados) with responsibility for Tax Services and Human Resources, Ikins Clarke, noted that several of Deloitte’s practitioners were UWI graduates and made commitments to work closer with the regional institution.
Partner and President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of the Caribbean, Betty Brathwaite, endorsed the sponsorship and encouraged students to join their association, and upon graduation, become members of their local institute.
More than 1,800 Cave Hill students are currently pursuing studies in Accounting.
