CAW Network USA recently launched a podcast series, “Beyond Accounting – Difference Makers.” Each episode highlights a thought leader who is making a difference in their company, industry, or society. Our listeners get to learn a little bit about our featured speaker but also gain their advice on success and pushing boundaries to change the landscape for the better.


Amir Dossal – 25-year veteran of the United Nations and Founder and President of the Global Partnerships Forum – a not-for-profit knowledge platform to provide changemakers with tools to build innovative partnerships for the SDGs

During this portion of his interview, Amir dives into how Chartered Accountants play a very important role in fighting gender inequality in the industry.

Amir explains what Chartered Accountants need to do to build social purpose into every aspect of their company. How this is their key path towards success and making large scale differences.

Ronan Dunne – executive vice president and CEO of Verizon Consumer Group

Ronan demonstrates thought-leadership and explains how he goes about making a difference in diversity and inclusion. He notes that that talent is broadly distributed and opportunity is not.

Ronan does not believe that an accountant must stay in the line of accounting. He gives advice for those who want to evolve into different leadership positions. For the sake of themselves and, more importantly, those working with them, they can take their skills and expertise to grow in the wider business world.
