A Prize for Achieving Balance in Your Life

If you’re using your accounting knowledge to better the world and still manage to balance your work and life, you could be the next winner of the American Society of Women Accountants Education Foundation’s Balance Awards.

The Foundation is seeking nominations for the seventh annual Balance Awards, which honor outstanding companies and individuals for their commitment to work/life balance.You can nominate your company for an Industry Award or yourself or a colleague for an Individual Achievement Award.

“Past winners of our Individual Awards program include a CPA who furthered her knowledge by becoming one of Texas’ top tax law attorneys, accountants and financial professionals who have worked within their community to provide financial literacy and who have shared their story about how they managed to overcome a particular work/life balance issue that they faced,” says ASWA Executive Director Lee Lowery.

In the entry, you highlight career achievements, the way you use your financial expertise within the community, how you manage work/life balance challenges and your relationship with ASWA, if any. The deadline for submissions is June 30th.

The Industry Awards typically go to corporate accounting departments, accounting firms or businesses that support the accounting industry, such as banks, employment and consulting services, or financial software firms.

AWSA chooses local, regional and national winners in August and presents the awards at its 2008 conference in late October.
