Why should you attend?

What does it take to support diversity and inclusion in the workplace? We continue to examine and reassess the answers to that question and we know that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach for organizations. 

But we can implement best practices as a matter of strategy. We can focus on leadership and boardroom diversity, encouraging and supporting women’s leadership at the institutional level. We can develop our skill sets so that we are responsive, adaptive and gutsy in tackling the biggest challenges. And we can network with those like us, who are looking for answers and want to drive themselves, and their businesses, forward. 

The AICPA & CIMA Women’s Global Leadership Summit in London brings those ideas to the forefront with leading speakers, thought-provoking discussions and great opportunities to network.
