In a recent Accounting Today article about game-changing women’s initiatives at CPA firms, Robin Bell, Tax Partner, discussed the Brown Smith Wallace women’s initiative, The Bridge: Connecting Women Leaders of Today & Tomorrow. The Bridge was started in 2014 by four female partners as an event series for professional women of all career stages to network and gain insights from thought leaders.
In the article, Robin describes the importance of integrating internal and external women’s initiative programs as well as teaching younger and mid-career women how to network and grow professionally.
“We want to help our younger and mid-career women get out in public in non-threatening ways so they can learn how to network while feeling comfortable,” says Robin. “When you can get so many women in one room from different professional levels, it’s very powerful and effective.”
