When Accountex Summit North was launched earlier in 2018 I called out the hosts of the event, Diversified Communications UK, about the lack of female speakers on the agenda. In fairness to Diversified their Events Director, Zoe Lacey-Cooper, immediately engaged with me. After a frank discussion together we launched the first Women in Accountancy Round Table discussion at the event in Manchester.
Such was the success of the session and the overwhelming voice from those that attended that women did indeed need to be more represented in the Accountancy profession that I felt compelled to launch this Women in Accountancy web site.
