Summer 2011
IE BUSINESS SCHOOL joins Forté Foundation a Consortium of Leading Corporations and Top Business Schools that seeks to increase women’s Access to Business Education and Careers.

The Forté Foundation is the leading organization that provides a national infrastructure for college students, business school women, and working professionals to access the “real world” information, scholarship opportunities and essential networking connections they need to succeed in business careers.

Called to action by a landmark research study, Women and the MBA: Gateway to Opportunity, looking at why women are under-represented in leading business schools compared with medical or law schools, the Forté Foundation was founded in 2001 to address this inequity and its impact on the business landscape.

Forté Foundation enables its corporate and business school sponsors to effectively reach, recruit and retain top female talent. Forté’s agenda to reach college-aged women, MBA candidates, and MBA alumnae will build on its founding commitment to increase the number of women in the early business pipeline, and will create partnerships with academic and advocacy groups, as well as its own sponsors, to attract and retain women in business careers

Forté Foundation is a consortium of leading multinational corporations, top business schools in the U.S. and abroad, and the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). Forté has become a powerful change agent directing women towards leadership roles in business and enabling corporations to more effectively reach and retain top female talent. It is the leading organization that provides a national infrastructure for women at all stages of the career continuum to access the information, scholarship support and networking connections they need to succeed in business careers.
