Thomson Reuters and PrimeGlobal Announce Global Strategic Partnership to Promote Inclusivity and Diversity in Accounting Profession

Global event series focused on bridging gender gap

DALLAS, TX, April 27, 2020  Thomson Reuters today announced a multi-year, international relationship with PrimeGlobal to produce a series of events focused on the future of the accounting, tax and audit industry.

The series will focus on a variety of issues, from corporate planning in an evolving accounting ecosystem to diversity within the profession. Leaders from both Thomson Reuters and PrimeGlobal will participate in a series of virtual events highlighting various topics including goal development and organizational leadership.

The series will kick off on May 15, 2020 with, “Stepping Up into Tomorrow: Making Your Development Plan Work for You,” a Latin America-focused seminar on forging and developing a career path in the accounting, tax and audit communities. On June 1, the series will continue with an interactive session exploring how women have navigated their experiences, while sharing advice to others as they advance in the field.

“The past few months have served as a stark reminder on how interconnected we all truly are, and in that spirit, what better way to empower the next phase of our profession’s development than by finding new ways to inform and cultivate a community of stronger, more capable tax professionals,” said Charlotte Rushton, President, Tax & Accounting Professionals, Thomson Reuters, who will moderate the June 1 panel. “We’re proud to enter into this partnership that will allow for not only a free flow of ideas and experiences, but foster the careers of these executives both burgeoning and advancing in the industry, putting them on a path to success for years to come.”

The partnership represents a significant step in international cooperation throughout the accounting profession. PrimeGlobal is one of the largest associations of independent accounting firms in the world, comprised of approximately 300 independent public accounting firms in 80 countries. Thomson Reuters offers robust tax, accounting and auditing software, research guidance and services using the latest cutting-edge innovation to bolster the capabilities of tax professionals around the globe.

“During these challenging times, the world needs the strongest leadership possible to help business build resilience and, ultimately, drive the recovery, and that’s why we’re excited to work with a company like Thomson Reuters that shares our values,” said Stephen Heathcote, Chief Executive Officer at PrimeGlobal. “Over the months ahead, we will focus on shining a light on the many inspiring women leaders across PrimeGlobal member firms and within Thomson Reuters, while creating a forum that allows for everyone to participate in the future of our industry.”
