DiAndria Green, a Senior Manager in Bennett Thrasher’s State & Local Tax (SALT) practice, recently sat down with Tax Notes editor Benjamin Willis, writer for the column Willis Weighs In, to talk about her career path and the current state of the tax industry.
In the interview, which appeared on Forbes, Green touches on the power of networking, noting that staying in touch with people from her past helped her land multiple job roles, including her current role at BT. She also talks about the importance of knowing your worth and understanding your own skillset, versus relying on others to notice your strengths.
“One key challenge is speaking up for yourself and knowing your worth,” Green said. “A lot of people will say[,] surely if I do a good job and keep my head down, someone will promote me. But I have found in my career that’s not always the case.”
As a co-leader of Bennett Thrasher’s Diversity & Inclusion committee, Green also discusses female leadership in the workplace and prompts the other interviewees to share their experiences with balancing family and personal lives with work.
