Women in the Profession
CPABC is committed to empowering women in the profession. Gender equality is a business issue and we are all allies working together. Here we provide information to help foster the continued success of current and aspiring female CPAs.
CPABC Women's Leadership Series
Many women experience their career journey differently from their male counterparts.
With our new Women’s Leadership Series, you can develop your skills, grow your professional network, and foster connections you need.
The agenda is designed to support women in the accounting profession by providing opportunities to share their experiences, ideas, and opinions in a respectful, safe place.
This powerful series comprises of monthly PD seminars, and reflection & connection sessions, all delivered virtually. Some sessions will be recorded and made available for a short time following each session to registrants who are unable to attend, but participants are asked to do their best to commit to attending all sessions.
Join us at the opening workshop on Career Navigation for Women on October 21 to kick off this series.
Registration closes on October 19, 2022.
