The mission of the Accounting & Financial Women’s Alliance is to enable women in all accounting and finance fields to achieve their full potential and to contribute to their profession.
AFWA has allowed me to learn leadership skills, team interaction, and over all great friendships that have helped me throughout out my career. I got my first job in public accounting because of AFWA.
AFWA showed me that I had a career – not just a job. AFWA helped me see that there are opportunities out there that I had never considered. If you put in some effort – you can continue to grow.
