Seminar: Simple Facts That Matter in Reading Financial Statements

Understanding the fundamentals of financial statements is critical to career success – but too many women don’t acquire experience in this area. Learn exactly why being conversant in financial statements is so important to your career; explore which key competencies to nail down, how to do that, and what questions to be sure to ask when reviewing the numbers. No need for bravado (or clamming up!) here; enjoy a safe environment to ask questions and begin building a foundation for understanding P&L, ratios, and other critical terms and ideas.
