Women of BPM
At BPM, we want the best and brightest people to serve our clients – and to meet their career aspirations. We are deeply committed to the growth and development of all employees regardless of gender - especially for the advancement of women in the profession. That’s why we are recognized as one of the Best Public Accounting Firms for Women by the Accounting & Financial Women’s Alliance and American Women’s Society of CPAs and why our Chief People Officer was recently named as one of the San Francisco Business Times’ Most Influential Women in Bay Area Business for 2016. We’re also recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work” by Accounting Today, the North Bay Business Journal, the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal.
Through our Women’s Initiative Now! (WIN) program, we focus on opportunities that enhance gender diversity in leadership roles within the Firm and in the community. Specifically, program goals are designed to: (1) ensure a culture that enhances the retention and recruitment of women employees; (2) enhances personal development at different stages of women’s careers and; (3) increases the awareness of women success.
To showcase our commitment, in 2015 we launched the Women in Leadership Series which included “Building Your Brand” training. These workshops provided one-on-one coaching to develop and execute career plans and increasing self-awareness as a female leader. In addition, the Firm dedicated half-a-day at the 2015 Manager Retreat to discuss building a personal brand through story telling.
This year, we are launching BIG DEALS IN HIGH HEELS led by Joanne Black, author of “No More Cold Calling.” These workshops will provide additional support, one-on-one mentoring and best practices for female managers and partners seeking to adjust communication and sales tactics to get results.
