Meet the 2018 Best Firms for Women

For the second year, Accounting Today and Best Companies Group have dived into our annual list of the Best Firms to Work For to identify a specific subset: those that offer the best workplaces for women in the profession.

To be named a 2018 Best Firm for Women, a firm must have either a minimum of 25 female employees, or women must represent 25 percent of staff, and the female response rate to the Best Firms to Work For anonymous employee survey must be greater than or equal to 50 percent. They are ranked in order of percent of positive female response, from largest to smallest.
