Men & Women Working In CPA Firms

“Careers are a jungle gym, not a ladder.” – Sheryl Sandberg

I believe accounting is a very female-friendly profession. When I began working in the CPA profession, I remember the Silent Generation managing partner telling me, “We now have a young lady who is taking the CPA exam.” He was very proud of that fact!

In my experience the profession has always been very female friendly and even years ago I felt flexibility was always there for working moms. It just wasn’t very flexible when it came to female partners!

Some of the friction I observe between male and females in CPA firms can be traced back to misunderstanding. Much like in a marriage, men and women are not always on the same wave-length. They approach things differently and think about solutions differently. Better understanding from both sides about some of these mysteries – Why did he do it that way? Why did she react that way? – can go along way to enjoying harmony at work.

Join me tomorrow – Thursday, November 2, 12:00-1:00 eastern to for a special webinar sponsored by SageWorks to learn why when women win, CPA firm win.
