    I work in the Banking and Finance Sector. The ACCA qualification has opened doors for me in my career and therefore joined the panel to act as a voice for ACCA women members to Connect, Inspire and influence. 

    This has mainly been through actively organising events ranging from technical updates to large scale events such panel debates. In 2019, the network is trying a new medium though webinars -  Women’s Wednesdays Webinars.

  • Gbemi Akojenue ACCA

    Having worked in various finance roles over 10 years, I joined the Women’s Network Panel to contribute to the ACCA and facilitate members’ engagement via advocacy, networking and sharing of information. The panel has given me an opportunity to know more about ACCA’s offering, strategic objectives and priorities as well as provide feedback to ACCA. 

    The most rewarding aspect of being on a panel is being been able to meet, discuss and answer queries about ACCA from fellow accountants (members and ACCA students) and aspiring accountants at our panel and other events.
