Through CareerLaunch’s industry panels, networking sessions, and interactive workshops, accomplished women from Forté Foundation sponsor companies and schools reveal the new world of business and help you envision your role in it.  Regardless of major, all undergraduate women with an interest in business will benefit from their insights.
