 MOVE translates the business case for advancing women to business results.

Read the 2014 MOVE executive summary in Public Accounting Report: PAR_05-14-EXTRA[2]

Also in the May 2014 issue of Public Accounting Report: how MOVE National Sponsor Rothstein Kass captured $6.5 million in new revenue from its Rainmakers Roundtable women’s initiative…and comments from Melissa Hooley, a partner with ACM and chair of the AICPA’s Women’s Initiative committee: PAR_05-14[2]

Insights from our projects inform useful tools for leaders, managers and women, such as the “Six Words That Incite Women to Quit,” as published in the Chicago Tribune’s opinion pages on August 2, 2013. Read it here: Why Women Quit Tribune Aug 2 ’13

Employers are realizing that what happens at work doesn’t stay at work  - not in an era of social sharing.  Transparency is the new currency of trust, as Joanne Cleaver explained in this February 2014 commentary in Public Accounting Report: PAR_02-14

We believe that the business case for advancing women is made in terms of each industry. That’s why MOVE is the standard for:

  • Public accounting (2010 – ongoing)
  • Transportation (2011 – ongoing)
  • Cable telecommunications (2003 – 2010)

The 2013 MOVE report debuted in May as an executive summary special section in Public Accounting Report. See the special section here: May 2013-Women’s EXTRA copy    And read the accompanying feature story here: PAR May 2013

Read about MOVE in Signature March ’13, the magazine for association communication executives. This feature shows how the Accounting MOVE Project is catalyzing substantive change for women in public accounting.

MOVE measures these four factors essential to women’s advancement:

  • M — Money (pay equity)
  • O — Opportunities
  • V — Vital work-life resources
  • E — Entrepreneurship

Wilson-Taylor’s methodology is rigorous and thorough. It includes both a survey and an interview, to ensure that the data is fact checked and considered in context. A major cable company that participated regularly in the annual study we conducted for Women in Cable Telecommunications calls it the “gold standard for industry surveys – the process that is most demanding and that yields by far the most complete, authoritative and useful results.”

Insights from our projects inform useful tools for leaders, managers and women, such as the “Six Words That Incite Women to Quit,” as published in the Chicago Tribune’s opinion pages on August 2, 2013. Read it here: Why Women Quit Tribune Aug 2 ’13

Participating employers provide detailed data about their women and women of color employees for a variety of key positions. In-depth interviews are conducted one-on-one, either in person or via phone, by Wilson-Taylor staff. Want more? Here are the details of our proven methodology.
