Forté Foundation

null

Forté Foundation is a consortium of major corporations and top business schools that has become a powerful change agent in educating and directing talented women toward leadership roles in business. 

Their MISSION

Our mission is to substantially increase the number of women business leaders by increasing the flow of women into key educational gateways and business networks. We will achieve this mission by: 

Motivating young women to prepare for a business career

Increasing women’s access to education and business networks

Educating women on the value of an MBA

Supporting women financially in their business education

Raising awareness of the impact women can make on business and on society/culture/environment/economy

Encouraging and supporting cutting-edge research on relevant topics

Their WORK

A critical part of our work is influencing perceptions among women about business careers: that they can be flexible, philosophically rewarding, and aligned with a principled, multi-faceted life that women seek. At the same time, we want to convey the benefits of an MBA toward this end: that it is “a degree for life” and a credential affording women optimal opportunities and flexibility in business. 

We are the only organization that provides a national infrastructure for women to gather the essential information and resources they need before they make life-altering decisions about entering the business world. To provide our audience with mentoring, networking, and learning opportunities, we have developed a rich curriculum of career resources for professional women.
