Powerful Leaders Shaping the Profession

With the Women to Watch Awards, the PICPA honors the women who enhance the profession through personal growth and the leadership development of colleagues. In partnership with the AICPA and its Women’s Initiatives executive committee, we are pleased to sponsor this prestigious award.

The winners join other CPAs across the country who have been identified as Women to Watch because of their personal success and commitment to fostering the success of others.

Nominations are open to all women who hold both AICPA and PICPA membership and have been in the profession for at least 10 years. Self-nominations are encouraged. Members may also submit multiple nominations. Next year's nominations will open January 2022.

This year's recipients were honored at the 2021 Women's Leadership Conference on June 22.

Candidates evaluated based upon:

  • Mentoring
  • Public/community service
  • Leadership – firm/business, associations
  • Authorship – professional journals and consumer outlets
  • Professional education development and presentation
  • Improvements to the workplace
