Don't miss Olympic champion, Lindsey Vonn at Women's Global Leadership Summit!

Attend the Chase Ink® session Thursday, November 7th for the opportunity to hear Lindsey's unique story and learn from her experiences.


Get inspired. Get Achieving.

The power of dreams. The audacity of belief. And the courage to live it.

Amazing things happen when these three come together. You tread places that you always thought you could, and shatter glass ceilings in the process. When the toughest challenges seek you out, you find out ways to overpower them.

The AICPA Women’s Global Leadership Summit brings together insights and lessons from the lives of those who are living the things that others dream of.

You’ll learn how to:

Climb the ladder
Use your voice
Empower other women
Manage your time effectively
Engage male leaders
Partner with your boss
Recognize unconscious bias
Promote gender equality
