KLR’s offices have active Women’s Business Exchange Groups including Boston, Newport, Providence and Waltham. We work with each other between/among offices to share ideas and experiences. We then share these experiences through our award winning in-house educational program, KLR University, whereby everyone in the firm benefits. Additionally, we provide coaching in both marketing and communications skills as well as strategies for increasing one’s visibility in the community and developing a thriving network. We mentor by connecting those who are beginning to develop their skills with those who have experience and proven success.Many of our women professionals hold leadership roles within the firm and their communities. This experience helps our clients to develop the skills necessary to guide woman-owned businesses through the maze of the business world. Through our Leading Edge Alliance (LEA), we are able to connect with the leading accounting firms throughout the world which gives us access to their networks, experience and programs.
