Join us for a conversation with Lindsay Stevenson, CGMA, Chief Transformation Officer at BPM. Lindsay is also the current Chair of the AICPA’s Women’s Initiatives Executive Committee. In her role as Chair, she is a champion for understanding the challenges and opportunities for women across the profession. She will be joining us to talk about the importance of including members from minority groups in the conversations when developing strategies and initiatives intended to support that population. You'll come to better understand why successful DEI initiatives are informed by those lived experiences and how to talk about sharing experiences to help pave the way forward. We hope you join the conversation!
Jina is a consultant and speaker on diversity, inclusion, culture, and belonging. She creates training programs and workshops to help clients move forward in their D&I journey. She is a storyteller and speaks candidly about her experiences, hard lessons, and ‘aha’ moments that helped her understand the importance of individuality, the value of curiosity, and the courage it takes to “just” be yourself. Often described as “approachable” and “relatable” by her clients, she works with purpose and the intention of being engaging, practical, and immediately applicable to real-world situations. Jina draws from her unique background and mix of work experiences to offer examples and share insights designed to benefit everyone across the workplace ecosystem – executives, management, employees, and customers.
Previously, she was Principal Consultant at EtiennePartners (EP), a boutique consulting firm that offered a unique strategy development, workshops & coaching to leaders, executives and entrepreneurs. Co-founded with her husband, EP was a full-time partnership in both work and life. Although in different professions, their work often intersected around the importance of self-awareness in leadership and navigating conflict within teams. Combining their experiences, backgrounds, and work led to the development of their unique approach to D&I, which she continues to use in her practice today.
