The Forté Foundation is a consortium of major corporations, top business schools and influential non-profit organizations working together to launch women into fulfilling, significant careers through access to business education, opportunities, and a community of successful women. It is 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.
Called to action by a landmark research study, “Women and the MBA; Gateway to Opportunity” looking at why women are under-represented in leading business schools compared with medical or law schools, the Forté Foundation was founded in 2001 to address this inequity and its impact on the business landscape. Through a combination of programs, scholarships, and network development, Forté aims to ignite and sustain women’s participation in the global economy as corporate and entrepreneurial achievers.
