The accounting profession continues to evolve and the role that women play in our profession has become more relevant over the years. But the question we should be asking is whether women in leadership roles have progressed in our profession at an acceptable rate. Are women taking their place at the executive levels, and if not, how can we make that happen? We will look at the current gender trends in our profession and explore challenges and strategies to further the goal of women in leadership.
Learning Objectives:

  • Latest updates on state of gender diversity in the profession;
  • Cover strategies to help women advance in their organization;
  • Discuss opportunities to help organizations engage and retain a more diverse talent pool;
  • Showcase AICPA resources that organizations and individuals can leverage from.
