The Women in Accounting and Finance: Global Summit is an event that celebrates our female leaders and showcases their accomplishments in the field of accounting and finance. This year, though virtual, was a great opportunity to hear the unique and empowering stories of the panelists from around the globe.
Being able to hear the stories of the panelists have made me proud to be a University of Waterloo student, knowing that as a student there are many female leaders in the accounting and finance fields that I, along with other students, can look up to and gain knowledge and learn from. As a woman, seeing other women in these professional positions has been inspiring to know that there is a place for me in male-dominated fields.
