New York-based CohnReznick (FY15 net revenue of $589 million) has been awarded the Winner’s Circle Award for Women In Leadership.
The Winner’s Circle Awards, a component of the accounting profession’s Winning Is Everything Conference, recognizes CohnReznick for its open and inclusive culture and for investing in change that supports advancement of women by addressing issues of unconscious bias and enlisting the support of both women and men in developing solutions to maximize human potential.
To help retain and advance women and prepare them to be tomorrow’s business leaders, CohnReznick launched its women’s program in 2005. Today, WomenCAN: A Collaborative Advocacy Network for Women provides access to mentors, roundtable discussions with firm partners, leadership development courses, and other professional growth opportunities.
In addition, the CohnReznick Executive Women’s Forum (EWF) is a business development initiative that provides meaningful events and experiences to offer women opportunities to build and deepen mutually beneficial relationships.
“I’m so proud of our firm’s commitment to women in leadership and the results that we’ve seen,” says Risa Lavine, chief of staff. “Year over year, the number of female partners at our firm is stable and trending upward as a percentage of the overall partner headcount. In addition, women’s retention is now on par with that of men.”
