Dear female participants,

We are delighted to inform you of the WIN activities that will take place during the 73rd IFA Congress in London from 8 to 12 September 2019.

As we gather in London we are conscious that 2019 marks 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 would like to invite you to celebrate the achievements of women of the past who have contributed to and shaped the future of women working in international tax across the profession.

The IFA London branch of WIN has also organised a “Salon / WIN Lounge” where material and speakers will be found during the course of the week. We look forward to meeting you at the breaks, in the WIN lounge and celebrating “100 Years” of Women with you in September.
