Women are inherently bad at math, right? Why does that stereotype persist when it is clearly incorrect? Women currently account for over 50 percent of CPA’s, though it is true that only about 20 percent become partners.

I chatted with two partners from national accounting and advisory services firm Marcum LLP, Carolyn Mazzenga and Jim Ashe about their climb to leadership in a major firm, how the profession has evolved, and what’s to come.
