The Black Female Accountants Network (BFAN Network) is a network based on Christian values with a focus on its members empowering each other to make a difference within the profession, workplace and community.

We are different from an association in that we will operate in a less formal structure which will be a combination of online conversations, sharing content, 1 to 1 meetings, small group discussions and larger networking events.

  • Qualified / Designated accountants
  • Internationally trained finance professionals
  • Experienced professionals
  • New / recent graduates
