Kathryn Britten, partner at BDO Stoy Hayward and head of forensic accounting,
has won the Woman of Achievement award in the accountancy category, sponsored by
Accountancy Age.

The accolade is part of the Women in the City Achievement Awards, which
recognise women who work in specific professional sectors, including
accountancy, alternative investment, and financial and legal services.

Britten has been a supporter of working arrangements that promote a healthy
work-life balance, and was key to the implementation of The Work Life Balance
Challenge Fund project at BDO, which seeks to provide employees with increased
career flexibility.

On winning the award, Britten acknowledged her colleagues for their support
and encouragement, and emphasised the importance of female role models in the
workplace. ‘I welcome initiatives that inspire others by raising awareness of
the achievements and impact of women throughout business,’ she said.

Simon Michaels, managing partner of BDO Stoy Hayward, said the firm is elated
with Britten’s honour. ‘We are proud that Kathryn is one of the leaders for
women in the accountancy profession and we all congratulate her on winning this
award,’ he said.
