This study of black chartered accountants (CAs) in South Africa was undertaken to provide a profile of black chartered accountants and an overview of their work environment, including career barriers and expectations. The study identified a number of barriers experienced by black CAs in South Africa. These barriers include discrimination in respect of job assignments, racial bias, a lack of black mentors and the resistance of the clients of auditing firms. It is apparent that these barriers have changed the career expectations of many black CAs. The survey highlights the need for the profession to address the special career needs of black CAs.
