e most important discovery I've made, however, is that what works for one woman might not
work for another. W hile many accounting firms correctly recognize the need for female talent in
their practice, too many treat related recruiting and retention activities as one-size-fits-all. Despite
their best intentions, this approach won't move the needle.
W hile I'll be exploring this issue in-depth
at my Women in Business panel at Xerocon in
August, I've asked a few of my peers to share
their perspective on how to nurture female
talent in the accounting space.

is not One-Size-Fits-All

and am global vice president of education and head of accounting U.S. at
Xero-- I've learned that it is about knowing your breaking point and build-
ing a supportive network.
