Carla is recognized often in Boston’s financial community, most recently, in the Boston Business Journal Woman UP feature, by the MSCPA’s Woman to Watch Awards, and with the 2016 ATHENA Award. Throughout her career, Carla has positively influenced women leaders in business. She is fully committed to women’s issues and balancing work and family to improve the quality of life for all involved.  She founded AAFCPAs’ “Women’s Opportunity Network” (AAFCPAs’ WON) to serve as a platform to discuss challenges for women in the workplace, educate and bring awareness to issues. The collaboration at AAFCPAs is working, as overall female leadership is currently at 47%, up from 25% in 2011.
Carla has made it her goal to recruit – and more importantly, retain women in public accounting, which has traditionally been a male dominated environment. She continuously seeks new ways to enhance the effectiveness of women leadership programs. She encourages millennial females to explore the flexibility offered in public accounting, make personal drivers and passions a part of their professional success, and to ask for what they want. She also encourages young female professionals to build a network of strong leaders and mentors who can help them envision a bigger and better path for themselves.  Most recently, Carla volunteered her time, and shared advice as a professional Mentor for the Boston Business Journal’s Bizwomen Mentoring Monday, February 12th at the Boston Park Plaza, Boston, MA.
We invite you to attend this Women’s Bar Association event, or share with others who may be interested, as Carla and others continue to champion a dialogue and actions which help women in business, drive mentorship programs, promote investment in women, and empower young girls!
