On behalf of the Accounting Influencers Podcast Network, this is the “Success in Accounting” show, going live every Monday to 150 countries and 30,000 accounting practitioners, fintech specialists and influencers in the accountancy, CPA and bookkeeping space.
This new panel series includes prominent and influential female leaders and voices in the accounting and fintech world. We have invited female leaders of large accounting firms, global networks, associations and alliances, plus senior figures in accounting fintech companies.
Accounting and fintech has traditionally been a male dominated profession but times are changing. There are now more women than men in accounting generally but they are under-represented in leadership roles. Diversity and the DEI agenda has also risen to prominence as a hot topic. The two objective of these panels are
- To inspire women in the accounting/fintech profession with career insights, mistakes and lessons learned, mental resilience tips and thoughts on work balance/meaning and leadership.
- To move diversity, inclusivity and culture further up the agenda for all leaders with real life stories and examples of best practice.
In today’s episode 27, “Inspirational Women Leaders in Accounting Panel 9” features

Hear what makes DIVERSITY, inclusion and DEI important in the accounting and fintech world, the legacy of a male dominated profession and the career obstacles and opportunities for women and under represented groups. We discuss the importance of role models and support networks, leadership styles and inclusive cultures, and share career or life tips for all accounting and fintech professionals who want to become leaders, get promoted, reach the very top or even just to be more recognised/accepted?
