Episode 4 – The Importance of Leadership Roles for Women
July 17, 2020
Many women are pursuing careers in previously male-dominated professions, including highly specialized arenas like forensic accounting in M&A transactions. More female voices are joining the table and establishing themselves in leadership positions.
In this episode of Deal Us In, host Kelsey Hitchcock is joined by Christen Morand, a partner and certified public accountant in Ernst & Young’s Forensic & Integrity Services practice. The discussion examines how the culture for women has evolved over the past 10 years, particularly in complex industries such as M&A. Christen shares her experience as an accounting arbitrator, a position historically held by men.
