Overview: The fields of finance and accounting play a critical and transformational role in equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). This symposium will provide an opportunity to explore some of these key challenges, opportunities and resolutions of the concept of diversity in the fields of finance and accounting. Empowering people and ensuring diversity and inclusivity in all areas will ensure that the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG) are achieved. In recent times, diversity in finance and accounting has attracted attention from investors, regulators, fund managers, businesses, corporations, financial services and accounting bodies.
The symposium will examine a wide range of key finance, data analytics and accounting topics, ranging from sustainable asset pricing, corporate finance, financial econometrics, forecasting, fund management, market sentiment, sustainable development, thematic investing, financial reporting, accounting standards, taxation to big data and data analytics. Submissions in all areas of finance, data analytics and accounting are encouraged. Submissions exploring equality, diversity and inclusivity in the fields of finance and accounting will be particularly welcome.
