Promoting growth, advancement, and recognition for women leaders.
The FICPA helps female business, accounting, and finance professionals develop their careers by offering mentoring programs and learning opportunities specifically catered to their needs. These communities provide a chance to make professional connections and share ideas that will help you grow in your career.
The Women to Watch Awards were created by The American Institute of CPAs to recognize outstanding women in the accounting professions and are given in two categories: Established Leaders and Emerging Leaders. Started in 2010, the FICPA Women to Watch Awards were created to focus on the outstanding women who not only shape the Florida Institute of CPAs, but also the profession.
Women are having a profound impact on our world. Be it in the business sector or their communities, they are integral parts in shaping what is happening and where we are going. They are using their knowledge and experience to help better their respective professions and are setting great examples for future generations.
The Women’s Leadership Summit provides business women of all industries with opportunities to network and advance their leadership skills.
The Women’s Leadership Summit is held annually during the Mega CPE Conference.
The 2018 Women to Watch Awards were presented by the FICPA’s 2017-2018 Chair, Alan M. West, during the Women’s Leadership Summit at the Mega CPE Conference on June 15, 2018.
