Deloitte Demonstrates Commitment to Women's Issues
Deloitte & Touche has released the findings of a survey conducted late last year regarding women in elected positions, particularly as president of the United States.
According to CEO James Copeland Jr., the firm commissioned the survey to demonstrate its commitment to women's issues. The 'Women in Elected Office' survey is one of several in a series the firm plans to conduct.
Based on survey results on the first go-round, participants were generally in favor of a woman president, but have some hesitation as to whether a woman versus a man would be more effective once in office.
'At Deloitte & Touche, women are exceptional leaders and full partners in our success,' said Copeland. 'We’ve commissioned this survey to demonstrate our commitment to women becoming leaders in all aspects of American life.'
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
