CohnReznick Receives AWSCPA’s 2015 Innovation in Women’s Programming Award

The American Woman’s Society of Certified Public Accountants (AWSCPA) has announced that New York-based CohnReznick (FY15 net revenue of $575 million) has received an Innovation in Women’s Programming Award for 2015.

This award recognizes CohnReznick for its efforts to continually develop new and innovative programs to promote and support women in the accounting profession, as exemplified by WomenCAN: A Collaborative Advocacy Network for Women and the Executive Women’s Forum.

“WomenCAN and the Executive Women’s Forum have experienced much growth in the past couple of years due to the efforts of our liaisons and other leaders who have embraced the importance of a gender-based diversity strategy,” says Risa Lavine, chief of staff at CohnReznick.

Through WomenCAN, CohnReznick focuses on creating a community that supports the development of women and provides them with the resources that enable their success. Participation in WomenCAN is open to all of the firm’s women and, through office liaisons, each region rolls out initiatives best suited to its local needs.

CohnReznick’s Executive Women’s Forum creates experiences designed to promote relationship building, career development, personal and Firm branding, and business development among women executives.

Earlier this year, CohnReznick was named to the Accounting MOVE Project Best CPA Firms for Women List, released by the Accounting & Financial Women’s Alliance (AFWA) and AWSCPA.
