The Women of IFA Network (WIN) represents and connects the many professional women working in international tax. IFA strives at being representative for a dynamic international tax community and encourages the participation of women in the Association’s structures and proceedings. After a first successful gathering in 2013 in Copenhagen, the WIN events were followed up during the next congresses. 

The London Congress marked 100 years of women being allowed to practice in law and accountancy in many countries around the world and therefore in tax. The IFA London Branch of WIN has celebrated the achievements of women of the past who have contributed to and shaped the future of women working in international tax across the profession. To mark this occasion, Slaughter and May have put together Recognising 100 years of Women in Tax, a wonderful profile book containing more than 70 profiles of women in tax. 

The profile book has been a wonderful achievement and a great asset.  We hope to keep the profile book up-to-date and would like to invite all female IFA members to fill in their profile here. A yearly update will be published online right before the annual IFA Congress.

At the 75th IFA Congress in Cancun, Jeanne Goulet, first Chair of WIN, welcomed at this possition her successor, Ana Claudia Akie Utumi.

If you are interested in getting involved in WIN activities, please get in touch with the WIN Chair, Ana Claudia Akie Utumi.

The objectives of WIN in a nutshell

Over the years more women have entered the professional field of international taxation and IFA now has over 2.600 female members across the globe. To increase the visibility of women within IFA, WIN has formulated the following objectives:

  • Building an international and trusted referral network of women in international taxation;
  • Increasing the level of women speakers and participation on IFA panels;
  • Increasing the visibility of women within IFA by establishing WIN groups at national level to improve the involvement and visibility of women in the IFA community locally.

The Women IFA Network (WIN) would love to hear from you and welcomes all female IFA members to join. For more information please contact Chair of WIN Anna Claudia Akie Utumi.
