The Women's Initiative Subcommittee seeks to support women throughout all levels of the firm. The subcommittee also aims to bring attention to societal issues that are unique to women, so that all employees are aware of those challenges and can work together to overcome them. The subcommittee offers business development training and other resources to women at Faber.
