"Women have accounted for nearly 56% of the workforce exits since the start of the pandemic... across all industries and all professions".

This IWD2021, we look through new research about the challenges facing women in the profession today with Shelly Frazier, a Senior Manager for AICPA & CIMA's Diversity & Inclusion team. Shelly is also staff liaison for the AICPA Women’s Initiatives Executive Committee and will be appearing in the forthcoming March 23rd 'Forging The Path' webinar (AICPA & CIMA member discount applies).

Talking Points. 

  • the effects of the pandemic that threaten the progress made by women,
  • the new challenges faced by professional women in the USA.
  • the additional barriers it creates that are unique to them.
  • choosing to challenge - or not.
