AICPA AND CPA PRACTICE ADVISOR TO PRESENT ‘MOST POWERFUL WOMEN IN ACCOUNTING’ AWARDS

Institute to Join Forces with Accounting Publication to Recognize Women in Key Leadership Roles

The American Institute of CPAs and CPA Practice Advisor will co-present the Most Powerful Women in Accounting awards, given annually to 25 women leaders who are helping to define and advance the profession.

The joint administration of the award is part of the AICPA’s ongoing efforts to promote inclusiveness and create more opportunities for women to attain leadership positions in both public and management accounting.

“We’re excited to work with CPA Practice Advisor to recognize some of the best and brightest in the profession,” said Jacquelyn H. Tracy, CPA, CGMA, chair of the AICPA Women’s Initiatives Executive Committee (WIEC). “Year in and year out, this is a highly impressive group of women that we hope to give even more visibility as role models and pathfinders.”

The WIEC sponsors research, mentorship and networking opportunities, and oversees the annual Women’s Global Leadership Summit.

Members of the AICPA will work with CPA Practice Advisor to select and promote award winners each year. The AICPA will continue to offer its “Women to Watch” awards, which – in collaboration with state CPA societies – recognize experienced and emerging women leaders.

“Now in its seventh year, the ‘Most Powerful Women in Accounting’ awards recognize women who are not just making a difference in the accounting profession, but who are the difference in the profession – our accounting profession would not be where it is without the impact these influential women have made,” said Gail Perry, CPA, editor-in-chief of CPA Practice Advisor magazine.

Nominations for the 2018 Most Powerful Women in Accounting awards are being accepted until April 27, 2018. Winners will be recognized at AICPA ENGAGE, to be held June 9-14 in Las Vegas. To be eligible, nominees should demonstrate they:
