Mark your calendars! The next Women’s Accounting Leadership Series event will take place on October 27 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) and Pace University have partnered to present an empowering event created by women, for women. The half-day conference will be held in the Aniello Bianco room on the campus of Pace University in New York City.

The event is open to all female accounting and finance professionals. Whether just starting out, steadily climbing the career ladder, striving for work/life balance, refreshing their knowledge, or anything in between, women in the profession are invited to take part in this inspiring event.

Having attended her first Women’s Accounting Leadership Series conference last year, IMA member Nicole Gonzalez Cumberbatch recalls, “I decided to register for it because I thought it would be great to network with other like-minded professionals; and it offered me an opportunity to become more involved with IMA. And I'm so happy that I made that decision! It was a very inspirational experience.”

The Women’s Accounting Leadership Series provides a forum for women in accounting and finance to share their ideas and experiences on leadership development and strategies for success. Attendees will have the opportunity to expand their professional network, learn about the latest industry updates, and discuss specific issues facing women in business. In addition to gaining valuable insights into advancing their career, attendees will earn four NASBA-approved continuing professional education (CPE) credits.

The format of the event includes:

  • A mix of presentations and interactive roundtable discussions
  • Program content featuring technical and leadership topics as well as industry trends
  • Rotating seating to increase networking opportunities with other professionals
  • Advice from successful female business leaders
  • Insight into the career journeys and strategies of panelists and peers
