About this event:
Managing mental wellbeing is essential if we are to foster a more productive workplace and better work environment.
The finance industry generally is famed for high pressure and long hours, where people can feel that unless they are seen to work long hours and weekends they will not be considered for career promotion. This kind of working environment has lead to stress and mental ill health for large numbers.
We can’t do it all without looking after ourselves first. The most important thing a finance professional can do for their mental wellbeing is to make time for themselves.
Join our Difference Makers as we uncover the issues around mental health and wellbeing affecting Chartered Accountants and the business & finance sector more broadly.

Chartered Accountants – Difference Makers
Finance touches every part of every organisation. The skills, perspectives and training that Chartered Accountants have makes them a force for real change when it is needed most. Chartered Accountants’ contribution at work, in communities, society and the wider economy makes them true “Difference Makers”.
Now, as the world struggles to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, and grapples with the disruption caused by the war in Ukraine, we face huge financial and business challenges. The right advice will be critical. That is why there has never been a better time for governments, businesses, and individuals to work together and to understand the value that Chartered Accountants bring.

Difference Makers Discuss… The Value of Diversity
In this episode, our guests discuss the value of diversity. Exclusion and discrimination can take many forms. Whether the discrimination is based on age, disability, sexual orientation, race, religion, gender or other perceived differences, being treated unfairly at work for these reasons is a significant and insidious problem in many workplaces.
