CS&L CPAs Recognized Among 2017 Best Firms for Leadership Equity

Bradenton/Sarasota/Tampa, FL

The CPA profession is doing better than it ever has to advance women, but women still comprise only 23% of partners and principals. That’s a challenge for succession planning, growth and workload management.

The 2017 Accounting MOVE Project, “Pipeline to Finish Line,” zeroes in on specific strategies and programs that propel that percentage past the 25% mark. In addition to reporting findings from this survey, the MOVE Project has produced a list of the top public accounting firms for women and top equity leadership firms. CS&L CPAs is included among this list of Best Firms for Equity Leadership.

The Accounting MOVE Project recognizes firms with at least 50 employees, where women comprise at least 30% of partners and principals. The MOVE Project results are based on surveys and interviews with 49 participating firms comprising 28,043 employees, conducted from November 2016 to March 2017.
