On the Way to More Women Leading: Forte’s 2022 Year in Review

As we reflect on the past year, we have much to be grateful for and much to celebrate. We are honored to play a role in your educational journeys and your careers. As we continue to expand our partnerships and offerings, we hope to assist even more women in the year ahead. 

One of the greatest joys of 2022 was being able to return to in-person events. There’s nothing quite like the serendipitous run-in to spark connection, inspiration, and a sense of belonging among like-minded women. Thousands of powerful, promising women are one step closer to fulfilling their undergraduate, early career, and professional goals. 

We look ahead to 2023 with renewed motivation and excitement as Forté continues to support women of all ages and stages in achieving their educational and professional dreams. 

Read on to learn more about the many ways Forté worked to get #MoreWomenLeading in 2022.
