Reminder: Accounting Firms Hire Lots of Women, Few of Them Become Partners

Here's a tweet from the AICPA Spring Council:

It's pretty remarkable that more than 55% of the recruits in 2000 were women. And I think it's equally remarkable that 15 years later, the number of women partner went down. And don't forget, even fewer of those women partners are equity partners

In short, a long-term career at an accounting firm continues to be low on women's list of career options. And since the business model and culture of most accounting firms isn't likely to change any time soon, things will probably stay that way.
