After the success of our first Women in Tax leaders guide
last year, we are continuing this year to try to put a crack in
the glass ceiling of tax.
A Tax Talent report in 2015 showed that in the Big 4

accounting firms either, with results showing in-house Head of
Tax roles are held by men 77% of the time.
Our intention with this guide is to shine the light on the
women who take strides in their fields, to show the progress
that is being made, and needs to continue, for women in what is
perceived as a male-dominated industry.
Companies and individuals should take this opportunity to
show the strengths in their teams. When the key word in tax
right now is transparency, it is a strong time to show
proactive and positive work to address the imbalance in
