#WeAreAccounting: Celebrating the individuals within the accounting community
As part of the digital launch of AccountingWEB Live and the road to our live event in December, we are launching a new campaign celebrating the accounting community – and it’s all about you!
#WeAreAccounting is all about celebrating the unsung heroes of accounting. The accounting community is powerful, diverse and integral to the UK economy. We know the individuals within it are often the unsung heroes of business.
We are proud to be part of the accounting community, to support and stand by individuals through the good times, and the bad. The past few months have presented exceptional challenges that no one could have imagined. Yet through it all, our community has continued to do an amazing job delivering answers, supporting business and putting the hours in under immense pressure.
#WeAreAccounting will celebrate individuals in accounting, shine a light on unsung heroes and share stories from our community to inspire, encourage and motivate.
Think Humans of New York, but for accounting!
So whether you are a junior member of a team or are a senior practitioner, we’d love to hear from you. And to say thank you, you will be in with a chance of winning £100 worth of John Lewis vouchers.
#WeAreAccounting launched on Sunday, 21st June 2020 – National Selfie Day! To celebrate, we shared some of the first #WeAreAccounting stories on our Twitter and Instagram pages. We also asked you to take your own selfie and help us celebrate the individuals within the accounting community. You will see the first results of that on the #WeAreAccounting page in the coming days and weeks.

We’ll also be featuring them as part of the run-up to our AccountingWEB Live exhibition in December, culminating in a physical display onsite at the event in Dec.
