Women In Accounting – Thriving In Challenging Times

Women BrochureI speak and write a lot about various topics and issues regarding women in the accounting profession. I also do the same about generations working in public accounting.

I want women to STAY in public accounting. They soon become skilled CPAs, they build relationships with people, inside the firm and with clients. They simply need flexibility, as do all people working in public accounting. It has become a generational issue.

Our society has changed, young men are much more involved in raising their children than the prior generations. Families with moms and dads building careers need flexibility.

If you are a member of the Michigan Association of CPAs, I hope you will attend the Women’s Leadership Luncheon in Grand Rapids on December 12th. I will be speaking on a Workplace Transformation…Women Thriving in Challenging Times. Here’s a link to the brochure and a link to more information on the MACPA website.

There is a huge dark cloud hanging over the CPA profession…. it’s called Succession. Women are key to successful succession.
