As the world begins to transition back to business as usual, it is more important than ever to provide forums, such as the Women in Accounting and Finance events to serve as inspiration to current students and young alums in amplifying the importance of female leadership and perspectives in business. The 2021 Global Summit event for the Women in Accounting & Finance panel discussion brought together three School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) alums to share their career stories and answer questions from event attendees. As stated by Elaine Lee (BA ’03), Senior Manager, Change Management Office, The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario and President of the UW SAF Alumni Association, a panelist from the 2020 event, “We need more stories of successes and leadership to continue to inspire young women to make a mark in fields that are traditionally dominated by men.”

Carmen Chung (MAcc ’10), Managing Director, Head of Finance and Business Advisory, General Accounting Investments with Manulife Financial in Hong Kong was one of the panelists for this year’s Women in Accounting & Finance event, hosted by SAF in early October. Leveraging her co-op experiences in accounting and early career opportunities in finance after attaining her Master of Accounting (MAcc) degree and the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation, Chung launched a career that combines both accounting and finance.

After detailing her career path, Chung answers questions submitted by event attendees.
