Minneapolis, Minnesota (June 13, 2018) – Lurie, LLP was named to the 2018 Accounting MOVE Project as Best Firm for Women and Best Firm for Leadership Equity.
In its eighth year, the 2018 Accounting MOVE Project found that women comprise 25% of the management committees at participating firms – a huge advance from the 19% reported in the 2014 report. Still, progress is incremental overall, with women remaining at 24% of partners and principals at CPA firms.
“Our firm has a long history of supporting women and minority-owned businesses and from these relationships we know that diverse perspectives lead to better work,” said Beth Kieffer Leonard, Managing Partner of Lurie, LLP. “Internally, we are proud to have prominent women in leadership positions, including 33% of our partner group, and will continue our firm’s dedication to recruiting and retaining women.”
“The national conversation about diversity is taking many of its cues from what is proven to work to advance women. The Accounting MOVE Project equips accounting firms with proven strategies that deliver what everybody wants: more opportunities for women and more growth for firms,” said Joanne Cleaver, President of Wilson-Taylor Associates, Inc., the content strategy firm that manages the MOVE Project.
