Women Gain at Illinois Firms - Slowly

A survey by the Illinois CPA Society found only slight shifts in hiring and retention patterns among women from last year, and says women are still underrepresented in key leadership positions at firms throughout the state.

Women represented just 10 percent of managing partner positions, continuing a one percent annual increase shown every year since the survey was begun. The number of women in both managing partner and executive management positions rose to 13 percent. It had been 11 percent in 2006 and 2005. That number, said society President Elaine Weiss, "is not increasing fast enough."

I posted a summary on JobsintheMoney, or you can read the society's press release.
