Alex Walker Turner

Forté Fellow alumna
Edie Hunt Inspiration Award Winner

As a Forté Fellow, Alex Walker Turner created a lasting legacy to motivate other women at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management to rise higher.

She and six other Forté Fellows piloted Rotman Links — a program that partners undergraduate women with both male and female MBA mentors who share practical career advice — as a model for other Forté schools around the world to follow.

For Alex, the mentor program nurtured an allyship with her male classmates that continues to fuel her relationships with colleagues at McKinsey & Company, where she’s thriving as a team leader and advocate for parity in the workplace.

“As a young woman in business, trying to carve a career in a traditionally male-dominated industry that serves traditionally male-dominated industries, parity is always top of mind for me,” Alex said. “In my mind, that is an opportunity to create partnerships and friendships, and Forté really gave me the mandate to do that.”
