Women’s Leadership at ENGAGE | AICPA ENGAGE 2020

Women at ENGAGE

Inspire, and be inspired.

The women who inspire us, do so by example. They demonstrate that with hard work and dedication, success can be achieved by anyone, regardless of gender. Today’s inspirational women—entrepreneurs, partners, colleagues, wives, mothers and leaders—demonstrate that younger generations can strive toward a rewarding personal life and a successful career.

AICPA ENGAGE is proud to host women from across the profession as speakers, attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors and we hope you will join us there.
