2nd Annual ABASA Women Leading Conference 2022
On the 17th of September 2022 ABASA hosted its Second Annual Women Leading Conference at the PriceWaterhousCoopers (PWC) offices in Waterfall, Johannesburg. This extraordinary gathering of women in the accounting and auditing sector was hosted in proud partnership with the Financial and Accounting Services Sector Education and Training (FASSET).
With three powerful panel discussions this conference continued to highlight the need for all of us, men and women, to rally together as we embark on Building Women's Economic Empowerment and Inclusion to Drive Excellence.
This event was addressed by South Africa's 2021 CFO of the Year and AGSA Head of National Audit, Bongi Ngoma who eloquently drove an impactful message of the journey from success to significance.
