Many rising professionals continue to face an issue that has existed in the accounting industry for quite some time: how do I best advocate for my career interests when faced with being perceived as "too aggressive"?
Thursday, January 31, 2019, NABA Metro DC and EY will co-host a session focusing on techniques and approaches that professionals can take to ascend through the ranks, and, more specifically, how self-advocacy and perceived aggression can both affect the trajectory of your career.

The highlight of the workshop was the Accounting Career Panel, led by Dominique Charles, Nikki Akinyeye, Dontrell Smith, and Rudolph Graham, who were asked to lead this session because they were all once in the students' shoes as high school participants in the program and could best share their academic and career journey.
