Corporate Sponsorship

Forté works with corporate partners across industries and geographies to  build a greater representation of women in the highest ranks of leadership.

To that end, sponsorship opportunities are available ranging from $8,000 for introductory conference participation to $25,000 for mission sponsors, who take advantage of Forté’s full range of offerings. Event-specific sponsorships are also available on a limited basis.

“The Forté Conference introduced us to talented MBA women from across the country whom we typically would not have been able to meet until the fall recruiting season. This is one of the best jumpstarts on recruiting that a company can leverage.”

— Julie Dewitt, Manager, Business Recruiting
