Women In Accounting
“If you don’t like being a doormat, get off the floor.” – Al-Anon
There is so much going on right now centering on the topic of women. There are some good discussions and information and some bad.
I still firmly believe that there is a great opportunity for women in the accounting profession and I encourage young, college-bound females to consider accounting as a career.
I have been inside a significant number of accounting firms during my consulting career. Have I seen discrimination against women in the workplace (the accounting profession)? Yes, of course, many times. Have I seen women in the workplace behave badly? Yes, of course, many times. Have I seen women who, in my opinion, deserved to be fired but weren’t because the partners were afraid of consequences because they were female? Yes, I have, several times.
If you want to read some of the many blog posts I have done on the topic of women in accounting, I have sorted my blog site on the topic of Women. Click here to scroll through them and, hopefully, you will read many of them.
