Last week, Albuquerque Business First media announced several outstanding individuals and organizations making an impact in New Mexico. On Nov. 5, these “Diversity Honorees” will be awarded at the 2020 Diverse Business Leader Virtual Awards for bolstering diversity and equality across age, disability status, gender, sexual orientation, race and religion.
McCabe CPA & Consulting Group LLC (McCabe) will be one of four organizations to be recognized alongside Mandy’s Farm, Rio Grande Credit Union and T-Mobile. McCabe is a Navajo-owned CPA and Tribal business and government advisory firm. They are based in Albuquerque and serve various Tribal communities in the western United States.
“We believe that diversity is paramount for the future success of our economy, especially in this current environment,” said Sean McCabe, CPA and managing partner. “To be recognized as an organization that leads the way is truly an honor. I would have to attribute our organizational culture to the core of our values, which is the ‘one-man or woman’ concept.”
“This concept is the fundamental belief that we are all one. One with each other and everything around us, no matter your cultural, racial, gender or sexual identity; no one individual is greater than the whole,” he added. “This belief is who we are and what we do. It drives our team to accomplish our goals, also helping us to accomplish our client’s goals.”
For the past 15 years, McCabe has been dedicated to the mission of lifting Tribal communities from the persistent disparities that hinder community and economic development. The firm’s internal and external capacity is exceptionally diverse, with talented Native Americans, Hispanics, and females in professional fields of accounting, government relations, health care policy, technology and more.
New Mexico’s economy depends heavily on the contributions from companies like McCabe. The Business First announcement cited that in 2019, the 25 largest Hispanic-owned businesses had $350 million in revenue and employed over 1,400 residents, and the 25 largest American Indian-owned businesses had $290 million in revenue and employed 1,500.
To celebrate and show gratitude, McCabe is allowing Tribal leaders and workers to join them during the Tribal Coronavirus Strategic Response Virtual Summit on Oct. 1-2 at no cost. The virtual summit will include panelists who specialize in various fields and who will engage in educational conversations about the interplay between health and economy during and after the pandemic.
“It is a training opportunity for Tribal nation leadership, enterprises and businesses, and individuals to enhance their knowledge of the pandemic and its effect on Tribal health and economy,” said McCabe. “We understand and we appreciate everything they do for Tribal communities. We want to strengthen our alliances in Indian Country.”
