Why Women Leave CPA Firms

“What is not acceptable is watching talent walk out the door.” – Joey Havens¬†

I recently read a great article via the Journal of Accountancy by Joey Havens, Why Women Leave Firms РAnd What We Can Do About It. 

He tells us two troubling stories about real-life situations for female CPAs in public accounting.

Havens notes: “I’m making the decision to get up from this gut punch and work even harder to make sure we shine the light on a better path forward. I commit to help elevate our profession until we are known as a place where every individual has an equitable playing field and opportunities to pursue their full potential and dreams.”

Then he goes on to give us some steps to take to prevent women from walking out the door!
