Hikmet Abdella: Governance Board of INPAG

We congratulate Hikmet Abdella on her appointment to the International Non-Profit Accounting Guidelines (INPAG) governance board alongside Risper Olick and Mike Jerome.

INPAG is a project set to create an accounting guideline to improve the clarity and consistency of the financial reports of non-profit organizations (NPOs). INPAG is being developed by The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) and Humentum through the International Financial Reporting for Non-Profit Organizations (IFR4NPO) project. It was launched in 2019 to solve the issue of not having international accounting guidance for non-profit organizations.

Hikmet is well-known for her work with the Association of Certified and Chartered Accountants (ACCA). She founded ACCA to encourage the growth of the accounting profession in Ethiopia. She currently serves as the Director General of the Accounting and Auditing Board of Ethiopia (AABE) since 2019. AABE was established with the primary purpose of protecting the public interest with the responsibility for regulating the profession as well as for issuing a national professional accountancy qualification that is recognized internationally.

Hikmet is also a member of AWiB’s Female CEO’s Breakfast Club (FCBC). A club that aims to serve the needs of high-level female executives in Ethiopia who face great expectations and pressure, as well as connect them with other women who share their goals. In addition, she serves on The Board of Trustees of The Center for Dialogue, Research, and Cooperation (CDRC). CDRC is an independent Ethiopia-based non-profit think tank, as well as the Board of Directors of the Ethiopian Red Cross.
