Why a Women’s Initiative at Anders

Helping women thrive and grow in both their business and personal goals is a core commitment at Anders. We believe an effective way to do this is to provide and participate in events to foster connections, education, sharing, advancement and business generation.

The impressive statistics of women’s involvement in their own businesses and in the boardroom of companies large and small provide a clear picture of just how important it is to make sure Anders as a firm is doing our best to serve this growing women’s market.
