Nanette Lee Miller Receives Multiple Honors for Business Leadership
New York City, NY - Nanette Lee Miller, CPA, West Coast partner-in-charge of Assurance Services, California Healthcare Practice leader, and co- founder of the Modern Family & LGBT Services Practice group at Marcum LLP, was honored with three distinctions for business leadership this month. On June 9, Ms. Miller was named an OUTstanding Voice at the San Francisco Business Times' 2nd annual Business of Pride program. On June 16, she was inducted onto the San Francisco Business Times Forever Influential Honor Roll as a women business leader. In addition, she also participated as a U.S. delegate to an international women's business leadership program in the Ukraine.
OUTstanding Voice - Business of Pride
As an OUTstanding Voice, the San Francisco Business Times recognized Ms. Miller as one of 12 LGBT leaders in the Bay Area who have established themselves as role models, cultivated a more inclusive work environment, and positively affected the climate for LGBT employees. Ms. Miller co-founded the Modern Family & LGBT Services Practice group at Marcum LLP in 2012, to serve the highly specialized tax and estate planning needs of those in non-traditional relationships not recognized by federal, state or local tax authorities. The practice established Marcum LLP as the first national accounting firm to offer dedicated services to the LGBT community, a full year before the U.S. Supreme Court granted federal recognition to same-sex marriage.
"The annual Business of Pride edition is about highlighting those who are providing that push toward equality… The event honored the companies and leaders advancing LGBT equality in the workplace, pioneers paving the way for more diversity at the top, and celebrated the LGBT business owners growing their companies here in the Bay Area," the publication wrote.

Forever Influential Honor Roll
Following three successive annual wins, from 2013-2105, this year Ms. Miller was named to the San Francisco Business Times' Forever Influential Honor Roll of exceptional women business leaders. Honorees were feted at a gala on June 16, following publication of the 2016 class in the paper's April 29 edition.
"In order to make space for new faces, we move some women off the list who clearly deserve to be on it. Congratulations to these exemplary women, whose leadership, achievement and generosity makes them forever influential," the editors wrote.
International Women's Leadership Training Program
Ms. Miller was one of eight U.S. delegates to the international Women's Leadership Training Program of Ukrainian Catholic University's Lviv Business School. Co-sponsored by the university and the American Chamber of Commerce of Ukraine, the delegates conducted workshops for professional women in Ukraine June 3-4, to help participants develop a roadmap for business success and professional growth.
"We went to Ukraine to share our knowledge of entrepreneurship, design thinking and leadership development with key women leaders in industry and government in Kyiv and Lviv, as well as with the next generation of women leaders running small businesses, including those getting their MBA's from the Ukrainian Catholic University's Lviv Business School. We came away changed and inspired by their passion and vision for the future of their country – growth can encompass social responsibility, economic change and personal freedom with a sense of national pride," Ms. Miller said.
