The 2020 Joint Conference and Doctoral/Early Scholar Consortium of the Public Interest and Gender Issues and Worklife Balance Sections will be held in Washington, DC at the Capital Hilton from March 27-28, 2020.
This is the first joint meeting to be held between the Public Interest and Gender Issues and Worklife Balance Sections. Both Sections view accounting as a social activity, with important consequences for accounting professionals and a variety of stakeholders. This conference seeks to bring together these two AAA sections to promote knowledge sharing and research into a broad range of issues important to the public interest and contributing to the quality of our common life. The conference will encourage interdisciplinary exchanges between scholars examining a variety of issues, including (but not limited to): social and environmental accounting, government/profession regulation, ethics, gender issues in business and the accounting profession, and programs/policies that encourage successfully combining work and family lives.
