What we're about
The Accounting and Financial Women's Alliance represents professional women in accounting and finance and provides them an opportunity for networking and continuing professional education (CPE) with peers at the local, regional and national level. We welcome job seekers as well as employed professionals, members of other chapters and guests. We welcome first timers with open arms!
Networking, continuing education and leadership opportunities are essential building blocks for professional women and AFWA East Bay provides ongoing opportunities for members to participate and develop powerful business skills.
With meetings conveniently located in San Ramon and Walnut Creek, AFWA offers a place for exchanging ideas, learning new skills and making great career and personal connections.
The Accounting and Financial Women's Alliance (AFWA) was formed in 1938 to increase the opportunities for women in all fields of accounting and finance. The first chapter was chartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. Members of The Accounting and Financial Women's Alliance and their companies benefit from practical resources and benefit programs that strengthen their professional growth. AFWA members tap into an extensive knowledge base of accounting and finance professionals with technical expertise to provide solutions for the most complex issues. Our members communicate both virtually and in-person through online discussion forums, national and regional conferences and chapter meetings.
