Forté Undergraduate Women of Color Leadership Symposium

When women of color have their voices heard, everyone wins. Diverse perspectives lead to brilliant solutions - from corporations to consumers to communities. Fort� and its alliance of corporate partners will help you shine during your job search and at work while embracing and leveraging your distinct skills and experiences.

This symposium centers the lived experiences of women business leaders who hold aspects of their identities that have historically been underrepresented in business. Specifically, speakers and facilitators who identify as African American / Black, Latina/x, and Native American will be featured in the programming. Undergraduate students from all academic disciplines are encouraged to engage in leadership development programming and training at this event.

Stay tuned for more updates on our Fall 2023 conference.
