2023 Women in Accounting awards open to recognize top 50 changemakers in the industry

Call for nominations to recognize exceptional women who are at the forefront of driving change and innovation in the accounting industry

United States, March 1st — Nominations are now open globally for Ignition’s 2023 Women in Accounting awards to recognize and celebrate the top 50 inspiring changemakers in the accounting and bookkeeping industry.

Now in its sixth year, the awards are open to all women in the accounting industry across the globe, including public accounting, private industry, government, bookkeeping and technology.  

Ignition Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Guy Pearson said, “The Women in Accounting awards recognize exceptional women who are at the forefront of driving industry change and innovation, and opening doors for the next generation of female accountants and bookkeepers.

“I had the privilege of being mentored by several inspirational women early in my accounting career who inspired me to go on to build and scale my own successful accounting firm. The Women in Accounting awards started as a way to pay it forward by recognizing the amazing contributions of women in the industry and their impact on the community and future leaders.”

Ignition, the world’s first client engagement and commerce platform for professional services, launched the Women in Accounting awards in 2018. The awards have since attracted over 1,500 nominations from around the world, recognizing 250 women from countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, United States, and the United Kingdom. 

In 2023, the Women in Accounting awards will focus on sparking lasting confidence in women leaders and fostering a sense of community. 

“A lack of confidence can inhibit some women in the industry from reaching their full potential”, said Guy Pearson, one of the twelve judges for the 2023 awards. “We hope that by recognizing their achievements, we can ignite real change in confidence and help more women back their own abilities and skills and seek out stretch opportunities.”

Charlene Rhinehart, Founder of Wealthy Women Daily, LEDE Fellow at Chicago Southsider and 2023 Women in Accounting judge said, “I'm excited to serve as a judge for this year's Top 50 Women in Accounting to put a face to stories that aren't always broadcast in mainstream media. Women all over the world can read the stories of the Top 50 Women in Accounting, see themselves in between the words, and get a glimpse of what's possible for them.”

Nominations for the 2023 Women in Accounting awards are open from March 1st until April 5th, 2023. The top 50 winners will be announced on May 2nd, 2023.
