The MOVE Project is geared toward retaining women leaders in public accounting and advancing women to partnership. The firms that participated in the benchmarking project were ranked on the range, depth and success of programs and workplace culture proven to remove barriers to women’s success, especially at mid-level and above. The Accounting MOVE Project highlighted Plante Moran for making sure women never fall off the radar screen, even when they cycle through alternative career paths or make the most of the firm’s nationally respected work-life programs. For more than 25 years, the firm’s Personal Tightrope Action, or PTA, Committee has created and facilitated policies and practices to help retain women and working mothers at the firm, encouraging flexible work arrangements and work-life balance. “We want to increase our focus on developing staff faster and better and developing competencies that will allow more women to become partners,” Gordon Krater, managing partner said. “Success will be shown by an increase in the percentage of women partners, women in leadership positions and when Plante Moran has a larger representation of women where there aren’t currently women leaders internally. That will not only define success, but serve as a competitive advantage for the firm and our clients.”
