    On behalf of the Accounting Influencers Podcast Network, this is the "Success in Accounting" show, going live every Monday to 150 countries and 30,000 accounting practitioners, fintech specialists and influencers in the accountancy, CPA and bookkeeping space.

    This new panel series includes prominent and influential female leaders and voices in the accounting and fintech world. We have invited female leaders of large accounting firms, global networks, associations and alliances, plus senior figures in accounting fintech companies.

    Accounting and fintech has traditionally been a male dominated profession but times are changing. There are now more women than men in accounting generally but they are under-represented in leadership roles. Diversity and the DEI agenda has also risen to prominence as a hot topic. The two objective of these panels are

    1. To inspire women in the accounting/fintech profession with career insights, mistakes and lessons learned, mental resilience tips and thoughts on work balance/meaning and leadership.
    2. To move diversity, inclusivity and culture further up the agenda for all leaders with real life stories and examples of best practice.

    Topics addressed in these panels:

    1. OPENING REMARKS

    What makes DIVERSITY important in the accounting and fintech world, particularly as a woman in a male dominated environment? (talent, perspectives, what women and minorities 'bring to the table', challenges for under-represented groups, prejudice - 'having to work twice as hard as more entitled people', is accounting and fintech becoming more 'woke' and 'gender-blind? etc)

    2. YOUR OWN CAREER

    What pivotal points or obstacles have marked your journey 'to the top'? (barriers, prejudices, expectations, your role models, seeing people like you in leadership roles, champions, influencers or even saboteurs along the way etc)

    3. LEADERSHIP STYLE

    Who have you admired as a leader and why? What did they teach you? What's your own style? A more 'feminine' compassionate, authentic and vulnerable leader seems popular. Is that you? Have you learned 'how not to lead' under some people?

    4. CULTURE

    What works for leaders in setting a culture that embraces a more diverse workforce and greater inclusiveness? Is it easier or harder to lead in today's complex world than ever before?

    5. CLOSING REMARKS

    What are your top 2-3 career or life tips for women in accounting who want to become leaders, get promoted, reach the very top or even just to be more recognised/accepted?
