April 27, 2021 – Susan is hosting a (free!) webinar, Overcoming Overwhelm with Strategic Time Management for CPA Academy!
Time is the only asset we have that is not renewable. It is incredibly valuable, yet, at the end of the day, we don’t always spend our time on what was most important. If we’re not intentional about how we invest our time, we will lose it. If you feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of what you need to accomplish each day, this workshop-style presentation will help you understand how you are currently using your time, evaluate that against your ideal workday/week, and implement strategies to create the change you desire.

Did you know that only 1% of CPAs in the US are Black (according to 2019 data from the National Association of Black Accountants)? The CPA profession remains overwhelmingly white and male, particularly when you look at our leadership ranks. By now, most of us understand the importance of embracing diversity in the workplace. Not only are there countless business benefits (e.g., increased creativity, enhanced perspective, improved performance, global impact and more), it’s simply the right thing to do. Yet, we continue to struggle in making meaningful change when it comes to diversity, equity and inclusion. During this introspective session, we’ll explore:
- What does it mean to be an inclusive leader?
- How can we support others who are different from us?
- How can we create an environment of true belonging?
