AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) has been shortlisted in the Employer of the Year category at the 2019 Women in Finance Awards.

The awards celebrate individuals and organisations leading the way for change and creating new possibilities for equal representation at all levels. AAT was shortlisted as a result of its impressive track record in promoting diversity and its focus on gender equality.

With women comprising around two-thirds of our 130,000 members worldwide, AAT has sought to lead by example in the areas of gender equality and diversity,” said CEO of AAT, Mark Farrar.

“We aim to be at the forefront of the sector through implementing new initiatives, in order to set the best possible example for our members, along with the organisations that they represent,” he added.

The shortlisting follows several initiatives AAT has undertaken in recent years. The organisation was the first accountancy body to sign the Women in Finance Charter back in November 2016, before signing the Tech Talent Charter earlier this year. In addition, AAT introduced an internship programme in 2018 which it is again running this summer, and promotes flexible working among its workforce.

The winners will be announced in a ceremony to be held at Grosvenor House, London on 26 June 2019.
