The New York-based accounting and consulting firm CohnReznick was recently named one of the best firms for female professionals. The recognition was made by the Accounting & Financial Women’s Alliance and the American Woman's Society of Certified Public Accountants.
The 10 Best Firms were selected from the 50 firms that participated in the 2014 Accounting MOVE Project. The MOVE methodology pivots on four factors – money, opportunity, vital supports for work/life, and entrepreneurship – known to advance women in the workplace. Strategic communication firm Wilson-Taylor Associates Inc. designed and manages the project.
“This year, the MOVE Project examined how firms capture return on women’s initiatives, influence, and internships. The firms on these lists make the most of women’s talent to drive top-line business results,” said Joanne Cleaver, president of Wilson-Taylor Associates, Inc.
According to MOVE: Proof that the combining of two firms can create new common ground for advancing women, CohnReznick used the launch of its initiative, WomenCAN, to create new relationships across the blended organization. Detailed analysis revealed organic strengths in a few offices that the firm is cultivating for cross-pollination.
Through WomenCAN: The Collaborative Advocacy Network for Women, CohnReznick invests in the career growth and long-term development of our women. WomenCAN focuses on establishing a broad women's network—a community of support—to provide our women with resources they may need to further their success. Participation in WomenCAN is open to all female employees of the Firm, with additional initiatives and events designed exclusively for women in the business community.
