Female MGI Worldwide accounting leaders took full advantage of the Africa Region meeting in Nairobi, Kenya, to hold their first Women Who Lead gathering.

MGI Worldwide Women Who Lead core group member Patricia Stock, partner at South African member firm AfricaRAS, initiated a get together of the female delegates on the eve of the Africa Regional Meeting.

A group of about 8 ladies gathered for dinner (& some wine of course…) to talk about being a professional accountant in these current times, including work life balance and stresses faced managing a balance.

Intentional or accidental growth? 

Patricia prepared an exercise on “The difference between intentional and accidental growth”. It was noted that intentional growth is very important.

The group pondered on the 15 invaluable laws of growth by John C Maxwell. Each participant randomly picked a law and shared their thoughts. Some provided examples of how these laws impacted their life.

All who attended had fun that evening and were inspired by the sharing and thought provoking ideas.

About 'Women who Lead'

While women are well-represented across the accounting sector, there is still a gap at the leadership end. By celebrating the successes and talent of our female leaders, we hope to inspire positive change throughout our network and in the profession. We will ‘lead by example’ and explore opportunities to encourage and support the next generation of women and the future leaders of accounting.

Now it’s more important than ever to encourage and support new talent from the next generation of future accounting leaders. Our intention is to communicate how accessible the accounting industry is and the wealth of opportunities it presents for women.

If you have news to share, we would love to hear it.

Lead - Inspire - Succeed
