The Chartered Accountants Worldwide ED&I Taskforce collaborated with research agency, Magenta, to understand and map the career journey of women in the Chartered Accountancy profession. The global qualitative and quantitative research study of over 3500 members across 8 countries identifies the barriers ambitious women are facing which prevent them reaching their true potential.
In this webinar we reveal and debate the survey findings and delve into the opportunities and challenges for women in the profession, their employers and the lessons we can learn.
What is clear from the findings is that our profession has a long way to go on its ‘levelling up’ journey with mid-career women facing a variety of challenges that men do not. It is important that employers recognise the talent these mid-career women possess and work to nurture and retain that talent – especially when many organisations are facing a recruitment crisis and are struggling to engage experienced staff.
