“ACCA has always been an inclusive professional body and we strongly advocate for gender diversity globally. We believe that it’s every organisation’s responsibility to support diversity and to review the way they support and open up opportunities to women – and all under-represented groups in the country. By ensuring that the women entrepreneurs are supported and encouraged, we can improve economic opportunities for our people.” – Sajjeed Aslam, head of ACCA Pakistan

“The accounting profession in Pakistan is committed to improving the workplace experience and progression prospects for women. We need to keep working together on a true, concerted effort to acknowledge long-standing issues, rectify them, and bring about change that creates balance.”

The event featured contributions from leading women business leaders and policy makers, including Shandana Gulzar Khan, Chairperson, Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians.

Opportunity and diversity are two of ACCA’s five core values, and it was established specifically to open up the profession to people of all backgrounds, based solely on their ability. ACCA is in a strong position when it comes to gender balance – its membership has a 50/50 gender split, and the Council and executive team are also balanced in terms of men and women.
