Advancing from a specialist to a leader requires more than just experience in the field, especially in Finance and Accounting roles where you are accountable for the successful running of your organisation. While technical expertise provides a strong foundation, stepping into leadership in today’s dynamic environment requires adaptability, authenticity and the ability to drive performance under pressure. These new frontiers of finance leadership bring great possibility and even greater challenges, and for women in finance and accounting there are still more challenges to overcome. Despite a much healthier representation in less senior finance roles, the gender gap remains markedly more pronounced in the C-suite, with Australia still lagging behind, with the top 100 employing almost half the number of female CFOs as their international peers.

To successfully drive career progression, you must be ready to embrace opportunities, take risks to yield better rewards and develop the key strategies to maximise your leadership potential.
