Come and join hundreds of accounting and finance professionals who are committed to creating an inclusive and equal profession, just like you.

Women have more opportunities now than ever to succeed and advance in the profession. The time has come to harness these opportunities and use them to educate and elevate ourselves, our organizations, staff and other women in both our professional and personal lives.

During this year’s Summit we will engage in sessions on leadership, boardroom diversity and best practices to enhance our skills and potential of women leaders within the accounting and finance community. Across three powerful days, you will gain:

• Recommendations and ideas of how to implement women’s initiative programs to raise awareness amongst the individuals within your firm
• Actionable tips on how to recruit, retain and how best to reward professional women
• Insight on mastering the balance between your work and personal life
• Leave refreshed, inspired and ready for the world. Our time is now.
