This report presents the results of a national survey of the career attitudes of female and male accountants.

The survey was commissioned by Women in Accountancy to ascertain the views of professionally qualified accountants from all six CCAB bodies towards their current and future careers.

As the number of women entering the accountancy profession increases, the survey identifies similarities and differences in the career experiences of women and men, and key HR challenges facing the profession.

The report aims to stimulate debate about how careers in accountancy might develop in the future.
