This essay is based on my plenary address at the 105th Annual Meeting of the American Accounting Association (AAA). I am honored to have been selected as the AAA 2021 Presidential Scholar. This essay represents a call to action. I invite my fellow accounting professors to fulfill our stated mission and shared values to be thought leaders in accounting. I present ideas and suggestions on how we can lead our students, our academic institutions, and the accounting profession in supporting a prosperous and just society.
