Roseland, NJ (PRWEB) June 04, 2012
Rothstein Kass (http://www.rkco.com), a leading national professional services provider, has been named one of the “Best Public Accounting Firms for Women” by the American Society of Women Accountants and American Woman’s Society of Certified Public Accountants as part of the 2012 Accounting MOVE Project. The list of the top ten firms was compiled from the 29 firms that took part in the third cycle of the MOVE project. Rothstein Kass was also featured on the list in 2011.
“It is an honor to be named one of the ‘Best Public Accounting Firms for Women,’ as we have always focused on providing women with the opportunities and tools for success through LIFE (Leadership, Inspiration, Family, Empowerment), our women’s initiative,” said Rosalie Mandel, Principal-in-Charge of the Rothstein Kass LIFE program. “In the last year alone, we have seen the percentage of women in upper middle management positions at the firm rise ten percent. Through our various programs, touching on every area from mentorship to networking, we are continuously developing ways to empower women in the workforce.”
All firms were ranked based on the “range, depth and success of programs and workplace culture proven to remove barriers to women's success, especially at midlevel and above” and scored using the trademarked MOVE parity scale, which focuses on four essential factors for the advancement of women: Money, Opportunities, Vital supports for work/life and Entrepreneurship.
