Carla McCall Receives National Recognition for Helping & Promoting Women’s Career Advancement

Forty over Forty Women to Watch LogoAAFCPAs takes great pleasure to announce that our firm’s co-managing partner Carla McCall, CPA, CGMA, was selected for the national recognition “Forty Women over 40 to Watch” list. Forty Over 40 honors women who, despite gender and age bias, are disrupting their career and harnessing their power to help other women do the same.  Carla is certainly well deserving of this distinction.
“I’m hoping to continue to disrupt the idea that women have significant hurdles to overcome in order to reach the C-suite in public accounting,” said Carla. “I’m passionate about creating leadership opportunities for women, advancing the women’s agenda on a national level, especially as I help support the American Institute of CPAs’ (AICPAs) vision. Collectively, our profession needs to include more flexible and modern ways of working that help promote women’s advancement.”
Carla continues to reinvent “leaning in” with her strategic initiatives for the future.  Her work has contributed to an increase of female leadership at AAFCPAs from 25% in 2011 to 48% currently.
“Carla is renowned for her creativity, clarity and confidence, and for creating positive momentum that is felt throughout our firm as well as with everyone she encounters,” said co-managing partner Dave McManus. “All 24 partners of the firm are proud of this recognition by 40 Over Forty and Forbes, as it’s a testament of Carla’s hard work and brings national attention to an initiative we strongly support.”
