The Accounting & Financial Women's Alliance (formerly American Society of Women Accountants or ASWA) was formed in 1938 to increase the opportunities for women in all fields of accounting and finance. The first chapter was chartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. Members of the Accounting & Financial Women's Alliance and their companies benefit from practical resources and benefit programs that strengthen their professional growth.
Accounting & Financial Women's Alliance members tap into an extensive knowledge base of accounting and finance professionals with technical expertise to provide solutions for the most complex issues. Our members communicate both virtually and in-person through online discussion forums, national and regional conferences and chapter meetings. The majority of our members have attained professional certifications such as CPA, CMA, CIA, and CFP.
The mission of the Accounting & Financial Women's Alliance is to enable women in all accounting and related fields to achieve their full personal, professional and economic potential and to contribute to the future development of their profession.
