Thirty women in senior finance and accounting roles in the UAE attended the event at the Shangri La Hotel recently.
Keynote speaker Cynthia Corby FCCA, an audit partner with Deloitte Dubai, co-ordinated a discussion on the challenges and opportunities for women who wish to pursue a career in finance and accountancy, while the welcome speech was delivered by Steve Heathcote, ACCA’s Executive Director – Markets, who was visiting Dubai.
Susie Isaacson, ACCA’s Head of UAE, said: “We were delighted to have been able to host this important networking meeting, which built on successful events for women in finance last year. There was a wide ranging discussion on the issues facing women in the profession, with a range of important points raised. As an organisation with diversity and opportunity at its heart, ACCA wanted to look at the huge contributions women make to business, along with the challenges and opportunities which they face in finance and accountancy.”
“We will continue to develop these networking opportunities on a six monthly basis and work to raise these issues on behalf of the profession,” said Susie Isaacson.
