From Audit to Tax: a conversation with PwC’s US Tax Leader

Doug McHoney (PwC's US International Tax Services (ITS) Leader) and Kathryn Kaminsky (PwC's Vice Chair - US Tax Leader) discuss Kathryn's background and her transition to PwC's US Tax Leader. Doug and Kathryn cover: Kathryn's experience as a woman in the audit and tax professions; how men can be advocates and allies for women; the differences between advocacy and mentorship; how to ensure career paths are not inhibited by the desire to have a family; Kathryn's experience as an auditor and leading practices for tax practitioners, auditors, and businesses; the challenges in communicating nuanced technical issues; challenges in transitioning from Audit to Tax and what we can learn from Kathryn's experiences over the past nine months as US Tax Leader; best practices for remote working; conversations Kathryn has been having with companies regarding potential upcoming domestic and global tax policy changes; how tax professionals can elevate issues to the C-suite; and why every business decision has a tax implication.
