The Alumni Leadership Council is an opportunity for recent MBA alumni to further Forté’s mission of advancing women. The goal of the council is to support Forté's post-MBA network as they navigate their careers.

Council members represent a diverse group of women leaders who have participated in Forté programs or events, and want to be more involved in our work. Guided by their unique perspectives and personal experiences, these women provide input on communication, programs, and networking activities tailored for Forté program attendees and MBA alumni. Council members are Forté ambassadors, supporting our goals to foster an engaged and active community of MBA women as they move from graduation to the highest ranks of leadership.
