CohnReznick Honored for Its Commitment to Women In Leadership

    New York, NY – CohnReznick, one of the leading accounting, tax, and advisory firms in the United States, is a recipient of the Winner’s Circle Award for Women In Leadership.

    The Winner’s Circle Awards, a component of the accounting industry’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 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 which provides meaningful events and experiences to offer women opportunities to build and deepen mutually beneficial relationships. What began as a pilot program in 2005 has grown into a nationwide movement – engaging our clients, employees, referral sources, industry associations, and members of the broader community. 

    “We’re honored to be recognized among the Winner’s Circle recipients,” said Risa Lavine, Chief of Staff, CohnReznick. “I’m so proud of our Firm’s commitment to women in leadership and the results that we’ve seen. 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.” 

    Lavine will join a panel of Winner’s Circle Award winners in the Women In Leadership category at the upcoming Winning Is Everything Conference taking place January 18-20, 2017 in Las Vegas. She will share the initiatives implemented that helped to make the Firm stand out as a Winner.  For 16 years, Winning Is Everything has been a venue for partners in the accounting industry to come together, brainstorm, and inspire one another.
