FD Recognized for Leadership Equity

Frazier & Deeter Named a Best Accounting Firm for Women’s Leadership Equity 

2014 Accounting MOVE Project Recognizes Accounting Firms with High Percentages of Female Leadership

ATLANTA, GEORGIA (June 18, 2014) – Frazier & Deeter, a nationally ranked top 100 CPA and Advisory firm, was named one of the 2014 Best Accounting Firms for Leadership Equity by the 2014 Accounting MOVE Project. The MOVE Project is cosponsored by the American Society of Women Accountants and the American Woman's Society of Certified Public Accountants and is produced in conjunction with research partner Wilson-Taylor Associates.

“Frazier & Deeter has made it a priority to offer support, training and flexibility for professionals, which fosters opportunity for women,” noted Terri Lawson, partner and head of the tax department. “The firm supports female leadership both internally and externally through the multi-faceted Women’s Business Leadership Initiative that Frazier & Deeter launched five years ago.”

In 2009, Frazier & Deeter introduced the Women’s Business Leadership Initiative to support female executives and business owners as they pursue their business and professional goals. The initiative encompasses sponsorships and thought leadership programs that provide financial and advisory support to women seeking to launch a business, make their existing business more successful, expand their network of business contacts or enhance their leadership skills.  

The Accounting MOVE Project evaluates CPA firms across the U.S. based on the percentage of women in leadership roles of various levels. The MOVE methodology indexes the proportion of women in the leadership pipeline to the proportion of women employees.

In 2014 Project MOVE introduced the listing of Best Public Accounting Firms for Leadership Equity as a new aspect of the project.  These firms were recognized for having a percentage of female partners and principals that is substantially higher than the industry norm of 19%. Frazier & Deeter was well above the norm, with females representing 34% of partners and principals.

"We were continually receiving questions as to firms with leadership teams comprised of women," said Kim Fantaci, executive director of the American Woman's Society of CPAs. "The building of this leadership equity list is not only encouraging but confirms that there are successful cultures and programs throughout the profession that are leading women to leadership roles and removing some of the challenges faced in the past. Congratulations to these firms for their efforts and results."

“Frazier & Deeter is proud to be recognized as a leading firm for women,” said Seth McDaniel, Managing Partner of Frazier & Deeter. “We believe strongly in supporting the women of the firm as well as the women business leaders in the markets that we serve.”

MOVE Project Methodology

Firms were ranked on the range, depth and success of programs and workplace culture proven to remove barriers to women's success, especially at midlevel and above. A key factor is the proportion of women partners. The 2014 Accounting MOVE reported that women comprised 19% of the partners in aggregate at the 50 participating firms. For the Best Public Accounting Firms for Women, firms with higher proportions of women partners had an edge in making the list. MOVE methodology pivots on four factors – money, opportunity, vital supports for work/life and entrepreneurship – known to advance women in the workplace.
