26 January - Diversity in the accounting profession: What do ideas of inclusion lend to understanding success
Achieving diversity in the accountancy profession remains a challenge. At senior level in particular, the profession continues to be predominantly white and male. While the advantages of having a diverse workforce have become well known, there are barriers to cultural shift.
ICAS President Catherine Burnet CA, Regional Chair for KPMG in Scotland, is passionate about increasing diversity in the profession. During this virtual event Catherine delivers a keynote speech in which she talks about some of the diversity issues she has encountered during her career.
Professor Susan Murphy follows this up by providing an academic response to Catherine’s experienced, practitioner perspective. Susan shares insights from academia that we can use to help understand and overcome workplace challenges.
