Women's Initiatives

Women's Initiatives The Ohio Society of CPAsMore than half of all CPAs are now women and professional opportunities are growing exponentially for all CPAs who enjoy a high level of trust and credibility among business executives and the public. That means women have plenty of opportunity to grow rewarding and successful careers at all levels in the profession. But women are still lagging behind their male peers when it comes to advancing into leadership and partner positions. 

The Ohio Society of CPAs Women’s Initiatives Group aims to explore societal and professional trends unique to the profession and to engage women CPAs and those who work with them in initiatives that will move women to greater CPA career success.
