Women are underrepresented in leadership roles across industries and functions.
Hispanic, Latina, and Black/African-American women are underrepresented in the business world. Forté expanded its outreach to women of color in 2019, holding its second Women of Color College Leadership Conference and strengthening relationships with historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs). Forté added two HBCUs as Rising Stars partner schools in 2019: Spelman College and Alabama State University.
Through executive education, skill-building workshops, leadership conferences, networking opportunities, and access to new positions, Forté gives women professionals practical tools to advance their careers. In 2019, Forté launched the Virtual Career Fair, where we connected women directly with recruiters from nine companies.
