James Moore & Company has 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 gender equality at all levels within the firm.
The Accounting MOVE project is the only annual benchmark that celebrates excellence for women at accounting and advisory firms. To be included on this list, an employer must have at least 33% 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.
Here is what the project had to say about James Moore:
James Moore & Co. has in Carol Villemaire its first woman managing partner. That gender equity is reflected in its partners, half of whom are women, because of a focus on mentorship, career advising and a mindset of coming alongside its staff to help them thrive, no matter their career goal.
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
