For the fourth year in a row, Kaiser Consulting is honored to announce the firm has been named to the annual Best Firms for Equity Leadership list by the Accounting & Financial Women's Alliance (AFWA). The AFWA, in conjunction with the 2022 Accounting MOVE Project, has recognized Kaiser Consulting as the number one accounting and advisory firm included in this year's nationwide study for advancing women to top leadership positions.

Kaiser Consulting was one of 21 firms recognized this year for elevating women's careers to the highest levels of success. With females representing 100% of the firm's non-institutional shareholders and 100% of the firm's day-to-day leadership team, the trend-setting accounting, finance, and IT compliance firm headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, is paving the way for women accounting professionals everywhere.

“Kaiser Consulting is honored and excited to be a MOVE award winner in 2022. We are proud to be advancing women's careers on our Team, including providing a pathway to senior leadership roles,” said Lori Kaiser, CPA, CGMA, MBA, founder + CEO of Kaiser Consulting.

With more than a decade of history, the Accounting MOVE Project remains the only annual benchmarking research and advocacy report that equips accounting and advisory firms to detect, develop and drive competitive advantages from diversity initiatives and trends. The project serves as the basis for the AFWA, a project sponsor, to recognize the best firms for equity leadership based on any combination of culture, programs, initiatives, and growth.

The MOVE methodology, developed by research partner Wilson-Taylor Associates, Inc., delves into the factors proven to be essential to women’s career success:

  • M = Money: Fair pay practices
  • O = Opportunity: Advancement and leadership development
  • V = Vital supports: Work-life programs that remove barriers
  • E = Entrepreneurship: Operating experience for managing or business ownership

The 2022 Accounting MOVE Project report, "Short Horizons Drive Long-term Success," examines how firms, professionals, and clients are increasingly adjusting the workload, time, place and pay for each engagement to support sustainable growth for all in the "Career-Fluid" era.

Kaiser Consulting's recognition on the 2022 Best Firms for Equity Leadership list coincides with the firm celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2022.
