In this special IWD2019 episode, four experts share their thoughts on tech and the future of the accounting and finance professions. Hear from Oracle's Kimberly Ellison-Taylor and "Changemaker's Playbook" author Amy Radin. We also feature Jennifer Gardner and Clar Rosso of the AICPA & CIMA. There'll be more at our Women's Global Leadership Summit in late 2019 in California.

In our first conversation, Kim Drumgo (Diversity and Inclusion Manager for AICPA & CIMA) talks to Kimberly Ellison-Taylor, a global strategy leader at Oracle, USA. Kimberly has been recognized by Accounting Today as one of the “Top People in Public Accounting—2018” and by CPA Practice Advisor as one of the “2018 Most Powerful Women in Accounting.” She was the youngest person, fifth woman, and first person of colour to serve as chairman in the AICPA’s 130-year history. They discuss the profession's changing roles, how technology is fuelling them, and the skills they'll require. 

Next, Kim speaks to "Change Maker's Playbook" author Amy Radin. A C-Suite advisor, AICPA Board Member and global speaker, Amy shares her insights on facing change head-on, how to fuel growth, and becoming a changemaker for one's organisation.

We also feature a conversation between AICPA & CIMA  Communications Manager Jennifer Gardner and Clar Rosso, the association's Executive Vice-President for Engagement, Learning and Innovation. They discuss the recent release of the World Economic Forum's "Future of Jobs" report, the opportunities that learning opens up for professionals, intentionality,  and the skills outlook for 2022. 

 

QUOTES: 

"Technology has really changed how we would have traditionally gone about our careers" - Kymberly Ellison-Taylor

"The more diverse your team is, in terms of background, perspective, gender, where they grew up, all of those factors are going to feed a stronger chance of success because you're benefiting from diverse opinions and backgrounds"- Amy Radin.

 "Learning doesn't always have to be formal so if you spend the time doing the learning and developing the skills that you need, there's a tremendous amount of opportunity "- Jennifer Gardner

  "We have to be really intentional. Think about what am I doing today that's going to help me develop as an individual and draw value for my organisation...really think about where do I want to be and how do I get there?" - Clar Rosso
