Was anyone else dissapointed to see yet another "goths can be accountants too" article in the AAT magazine? It seems so self obsessed and to be honest, immature. I couldn't care less about the womans background or lifestile (or even gender), as long as she can do her job. The AAT woundn't dream of publishing a similar article about say ... a black person and nor should it.
AAT appears to pride itself on diversity, pointing out its new international programe of events in Jamaica, Malaysa, Botswana (population 2m) etc, it's just a shame that over the past two years it has advertised hardly any events in Scotland, even in the issue with a huge section devoted to Scottish independence.
As a MIP I would like to feel that I treat all clients equally and offer a high level of service regardless of age, gender, race, sexuality or disability. However, I am expected to consider if I have the resources to service a client before I take them on.
Perhaps the AAT should do the same in considering if it can genuinely offer events and branch support to people residing in Scotland (I'm not Scottish). Before it takes their membership fees.
