San Jose, CA. (June 3, 2015) — In its sixth year, the 2015 Accounting MOVE Project reports a significant boost in the proportion of women partners and principals at the 47 CPA firms participating in the project—an average of 22%, up from 17% five years ago.
The bar is rising for all firms, but with women comprising 46% of its ownership, Abbott Stringham & Lynch more than exceeded that threshold, earning a spot on the Equity Leadership List. The Accounting MOVE Project Equity Leadership list recognizes firms with at least 31% female partners and principals. Based on Accounting MOVE Project research, it is released annually by the Accounting & Financial Women’s Alliance (AFWA) and American Women’s Society of CPAs (AWSCPA).
