International Tax Review is delighted to return to NYC for our 2nd annual Women in Tax Forum. This interactive one-day forum will cover US and global tax and transfer pricing developments and provide a platform for tax professionals and in-house tax practitioners to learn in a collaborative and supportive environment. Nothing is the same as last year. Tax professionals and practitioners need to catch up on legislative developments, discuss the impact of pending legislation on their businesses, determine the best structuring, negotiating and documenting of business entities, account for the US taxation of international transactions, and determine the tax implications of certain financing and joint ventures.
In addition, our forum also offers the chance to celebrate women in tax and learn from their real-life experiences on career progression, leadership, sponsorship/mentorship, and work-life balance. We need more senior women leaders in tax (chief tax officers) since it is proven that gender-balanced leadership teams result in better business performance because they are less prone to tax evasion or accounting fraud and they assess risk differently when making strategic decisions.
Fenwick's Ora Grinberg and Julia Ushakova-Stein will be speaking on a panel about US Tax Reform and its effect on international tax.
