a collaborative community for women in accounting

It’s time for us to start doing something to shift that dynamic & get comfortable with getting our voices out there. Rather than waiting for someone else to pass us the mic, we’re building our own megaphone so than every women can have an equal opportunity to be seen and heard in the world of accounting.
