She further commented on our representatives saying that “They represented well and are indeed solid role models for young women globally.”

“At our event a range of ACCA stakeholders were present and for us having your group there was very important . I have already found similar values between ACCA and Cadets. At ACCA our core values are of opportunity, diversity, innovation, integrity and accountability.

The Cadets has a focus on instilling qualities such as discipline, loyalty and duty. To support the vision of a society, this requires long-term investment from businesses, organisations and individuals that fulfils our stewardship responsibilities to champion diversity. We are all very much a key part of this vision.”
