Collaborative, genuine and empowering: Celebrating Morison KSi’s women leaders

This year we are celebrating, in a meaningful way, our Morison KSi women leaders; it is a day to remember our achievements and successes and to feel proud. This celebration has two facets, events and our thought leadership report.

On Monday 8 March, 2021 we will host our own events where our panellists will share with us their journeys, challenges and advice. Over 40 women, from members in 18 countries, have contributed to a ground-breaking piece of research which explores how our diverse leadership continues to contribute to our firms’ sustainable success in their markets.

These impressive role models have generously shared their personal professional journeys and how their experiences and approach to clients and employees have shaped their inclusive leadership styles. The report is truly inspirational for anyone considering a role in the accountancy profession though it is certainly not limited to it. Perhaps more importantly it provides deep insight into what inclusive and genuine leadership is. Therefore, anyone who is looking to develop their own leadership approach would benefit from reading this report.

Morison KSi Board Directors

As we will see, there are many women in senior leadership positions in MKSi member firms all across the world; some of these women have been pioneers in their markets, paving the way and nurturing other professionals. We honour and thank them for their guidance, courage and perseverance.

We were encouraged that so many of the contributors (82%) were willing to consider a leadership role within the association’s boards and growing number of committees. As evidence demonstrates, diversity at the board level provides better results. The decisions may be more challenging to realise, but the outcomes are far more robust.

As part of the Morison KSi Strategy (2020-2023), the association is committed to, ‘promoting diversity and be more inclusive in our activities as an association’ this celebration is therefore our first step in delivering this aspect of the strategy.

We hope you will join us in celebrating our talented women from around the world.
