James Moore: Best CPA Firm for Equity Leadership by the Accounting MOVE Project in 2021

Gainesville, FL (Oct. 18, 2021) – For the third straight year, James Moore & Company (James Moore) has once again been named to the Accounting MOVE Project’s list of Top Firms for Equity Leadership. The firm was selected for this national honor in recognition of their gender equality at all levels within the company.

James Moore was cited for having women in 58% of its partner or principal positions—the third-highest percentage indicated among honorees. The project’s report also noted our work with Historically Black Colleges and Universities to cultivate student interest in accounting careers.

The Accounting MOVE project is the only annual benchmarking project that both counts and advocates for women in the profession. To be included on this list, an employer must have at least 30% women partners and principals in the firm—recognizing that firms achieving this milestone have done so through a combination of culture, programs, initiatives and growth.

The Accounting MOVE Project is based on the MOVE methodology, developed by research partner Wilson-Taylor Associates, Inc., which investigates the factors proven to be essential to women’s career success:

M – Money: fair pay practices;

O – Opportunity: advancement and leadership development;

V – Vital supports: work-life programs that remove barriers;

E – Entrepreneurship: operating experience for managing or business ownership

James Moore, founded in 1964, is a regional firm with offices in Daytona Beach, DeLand, Gainesville and Tallahassee, Florida. The firm specializes in providing tax, auditing, accounting and controllership, wealth management services, technology solutions, HR solutions and business consulting services.
