Forté College Fast Track to Finance Conference

Applications Open Spring 2020

Do you enjoy working in an exciting and fast-paced environment, researching options, and making recommendations? Keep reading!

In this one-day conference, you'll explore a multitude of financial careers. Investment banking, sales and trading, and relationship management are just some of the options to explore. You will learn by "doing," build leadership skills, and expand your network while you are introduced to rewarding careers in financial services.

You don't need to be a finance major to attend — financial organizations need women from diverse academic backgrounds. You'll meet women financial leaders and recent college grads from top firms who will share their experiences on launching a career, building client relationships, and why they love their career choice.

The best part? The conference is free to attend! Forté even offers travel stipends so all undergrad women have the opportunity to get on the fast track.

Find A Work Environment Where You Can Be Yourself

While studying at Harvard Law School, Johanna Robinson had a hunch she'd be happiest working in business. When her first two years practicing law ultimately strengthened her interest in a finance career, it motivated Johanna to earn an MBA and led her to Evercore's corporate advisory practice.
