Objectives

The Gender Issues and Worklife Balance Section of the American Accounting Association has the overall objective of facilitating interaction among Association members regarding gender issues as they relate to accounting practice, research, and education.
Specific objectives include, but are not limited to:

  1. Promoting knowledge and encouraging research in gender issues by identifying areas in need of research, facilitating the exchange of ideas and findings, and providing opportunities for exposure of research results;
  2. Fostering opportunities to enrich women's professional lives so they may reach their full potential as scholars and practitioners; facilitating increased participation of women in professional conferences, committees, and editorial boards of publications;
  3. Providing a forum in which Association men and women can discuss the impact of women's increased participation in the workforce, and encouraging interdisciplinary exchanges between accountants and members of other learned groups;
  4. Promoting equitable treatment of women in business and academia, and promoting classroom knowledge and sensitivity to gender issues;
  5. Increasing the awareness of the policies that assist professional women and men in successfully combining career and family; and
  6. Determining to explore those areas in which accountants' unique financial expertise can improve the economic and social well-being of women and men in contemporary society.

In order to meet its objectives, the Gender Issues and Worklife Balance Section will sponsor the following activities, consistent with American Accounting Association policy:

  1. Sessions(s) and appropriate programs at the Annual and Regional meetings of the Association;
  2. Publication of a newsletter to disseminate information regarding members' research, forthcoming Association programs, accounting conferences of interest, topics for potential research, and other relevant issues; and
