I will be speaking in October 2017 at “Women Who Count,” the national conference of the Accounting & Financial Women’s Alliance (AFWA) in Alexandria, Virginia. For AFWA, I wrote the article linked below, which closely tracks the theme of my talk.
My key themes:
- Accounting and finance professionals can have a great future, but it’s not guaranteed.
- They have to sieze the initiative and make the transformation they want happen.
- The scary news: The center drops out–mid-skill level work is destined for automation, and that includes accounting and finance.
- The good news: The transformation of commerce–new business forms, new scales of operation, and other elements of the “millennial economy” create new opportunities for accounting and finance professional.
