Women Partners on the Rise
Although women now make up about half of the workforce at
the 25 largest CPA firms
and constitute half of
today's accounting graduates, they still lag behind men
when it comes to making partner. However, a survey of
those firms revealed that
more women are making
partner today than ever before.
|Among the 25 firms
surveyed, the percentage of partners who
are women rose steadily.
|Three Big Five firms are
among those who have the highest
proportion of women partners.
|Many of the top 25 firms
aggressively added women to their
partnership rolls this year.
