With the number of women entering accounting at near-record highs, but the number of those progressing to leadership in the profession rising much more slowly, if at all, Accounting Today introduces its first-ever list of the Best Firms for Women.

Based on our Best Firms to Work For list, the new ranking highlights those firms that: have at least 25 women in the organization or representing 25 percent of staff, whichever is higher, and have female response rates to the Best Firms employee survey of over 50 percent. The list is then ranked by the percent of positive female responses.

The full Best Firms for Women report, sponsored by ADP, is available in a digital edition.
