According to This, Grant Thornton Is Finally Better Than PwC and Deloitte at Something

And no, it isn't performing crappy audits.

The 2014 NAFE Top 50 Companies for Executive Women list is out and while EY and KPMG both made the list along with GT, you won't find PwC nor Deloitte ANYWHERE. Maybe someone should check 1955 and see if they're in the kitchen making us a nice pie.

Anyhoo, let's take a look at what makes GT such a DYNAMIC place for women execs:

What We Love

This professional services firm’s Women at Grant Thornton program, led by Erica O’Malley, the national managing partner of diversity and inclusion, has given its regional representatives three-year goals around retaining and promoting women. Designated male partners in every office serve as “champions” for promising female talent, and a sponsorship initiative for women has helped 50% of the inaugural group earn partner, principal or managing director gigs since 2011. To keep their advancement top of mind, O’Malley monitors high-performing female senior managers and directors, regularly circulating their names to firm leaders to ensure these women are considered for key roles.

CEO: Stephen Chipman

Chief People & Culture Officer: Pamela Harless

EY, KPMG, and Grant Thornton all made the Top 10. Let's all start the slow clap for them, or something.
