Earlier this week, some members of our team attended the launch event for United Way of Santa Barbara County’s Women United! Women United’s mission is to mobilize a powerful leadership network of women to strengthen the Santa Barbara community through a focused investment of talent, compassion, and philanthropy. As table sponsors of the event, DBNTM was represented by women from our tax, audit, para-professional, and administrative teams. We are proud to be part of this exciting new initiative and look forward to working alongside like-minded female leaders in our community!
Fun facts about women in accounting:
- Since 1983, the number of female accountants in the U.S has grown from 39% to over 61%!
- More than half of graduates from accounting related Bachelor’s, Master’s, and PhD programs are female.
- The number of partnership positions at CPA firms held by women is also increasing and we think that is pretty fantastic!
