As women around the world celebrate and support International Women's Day 2017, we wanted to draw your attention to the article "Women in Finance: Not Adding Up!" published in the recent issue of International Accountant. The article is based on a report by Visible Women (VW), examining gender diversity in the accounting profession. The report found that less than a quarter of the 4,771 executives they profiled were female and highlighted the need for professional accounting bodies to do more to attract and support female members and accountancy firms to do more to promote flexible working practices.
