Ignition, the leading revenue generation platform for professional services, today announces that nominations are open globally for the 2024 Women in Accounting awards, which will recognize and celebrate the top 50 inspiring catalysts of change in the accounting and bookkeeping industry.

Now in its seventh year, the awards are open to all women in the accounting industry across the globe, including public accounting, private industry, government, bookkeeping, and technology.  

“The Women in Accounting Awards recognize exceptional women driving industry change and innovation,” says Ignition Founder and CEO, Guy Pearson. “These extraordinary women introduce new ideas, challenge the status quo, and highlight the need for transformation, inspiring others through their actions and words.

“Their enthusiasm and commitment encourage the entire community to engage in the change process. With the Women in Accounting awards, we aspire to give these visionary and innovative leaders the recognition they deserve in 2024.”

Ignition, in an effort to empower women and inspire change, launched the Women in Accounting Awards in 2018. The awards have since attracted over 2,600+ nominations worldwide, recognizing 248 winners from countries including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

Reflecting on what the Top 50 Women in Accounting means, 2023 alumni Elizabeth Pittelkow Kittner said: “This award is a testament to the power of dedication and the enthusiastic pursuit of improving the accounting profession and those who work in it. It highlights conviction in our collective dreams and serves as a light for aspiring professionals, demonstrating how hard work and perseverance can lead to successes that elevate us, those we inspire, and our profession.”

Judged by an elite panel of industry leaders from leading accounting firms and solutions, including Intuit and Xero, the 2024 Women in Accounting Awards will recognize women leaders as catalysts of change. Winners will be selected by demonstrating their vision, resilience, and innovation while fostering a sense of community through shared stories and collective inspiration.

Jaclyn Anku, ProAdvisor Training & Certification Leader at Intuit, and 2024 Women in Accounting judge said, “I’m honored to serve as a judge for this year’s Top 50 Women in Accounting to honor, celebrate, and elevate the outstanding accomplishments of women from across the globe. This is an opportunity to amplify powerful stories of women who have driven change, to reflect on how far we’ve come, and to build community so that we can move forward together."

Nominations for the 2024 Women in Accounting Awards are open from July 1st until August 2nd, 2024. The top 50 winners will be announced on August 28th, 2024.
