Women in Tax leaders guide - nominate now

Women in Tax

This is your chance to nominate the leading women in the tax advisory world. The submission period is now open.

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, women account for 53% of staff entering senior levels however this decreases to just 21% at partner level. The trend isn’t limited to public 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 supporting women.

Accordingly International Tax Review and TP Week invite you to participate in researching the leading women in tax.

Methodology

Inclusion in the Women in Tax leaders guide will be based on a minimum number of nominations received from peers and clients, along with evidence of outstanding success in the past year. Firms and individuals cannot pay to be recommended in this guide.
