2024 Forté MBA Women of Color Symposium

This pre-conference symposium, taking place on June 27, 2024, is a space dedicated to empowering MBA women of color through candid conversations, relevant panel discussions, and exclusive networking opportunities.

Specifically, speakers and facilitators who identify as African American/Black, Latina/x, and Native American will be featured in the programming. MBA women and allies who are registered to attend the 2024 Forté MBA Women’s Leadership Conference are invited to engage in leadership development programming and training at this event.
