"Forté gave me an opportunity to not only understand the biases and double binds that women face in various professions, but also tools that helped me combat those biases better. I have always been impressed by our willingness to challenge the status quo both in terms of the way we run our organization and also on the impact we have on gender dynamics in the larger business community.
The mentors, friends, and support that I received here has helped me grow not only within the organization but also in my other endeavours in and outside of Cornell. From business etiquettes to public speaking to leading and mentoring younger members, Forté has given me a lot of opportunities. However, we still have a long way to go in terms of raising awareness and eradicating biases against women and I am excited to see Forte's role in initiating the movement at Cornell."

“Forté was by far my favorite experience at Cornell University. It’s an organization of driven, smart, positive women who pursue their passions across various industries and places around the world. With Forté, you not only develop your professional and personal skills, but you also gain access to an inspiring community of like-minded women and exclusive speaker events, workshops, and events. Because of Forté, I gained a support network that has been a great resource throughout my career.”

"I appreciate Forté for the ways it has helped me develop professionally and personally. When I first joined Forté, I was welcomed by inspirational women leaders on campus. They invested in my growth and taught me how to stay genuine to my personality while demonstrating confidence in the professional setting.
Through Forté, I found some of the most supportive individuals in Cornell. I also had chance to practice different skills and experiment with ideas when I served on Eboard. I will be joining Accenture's New York Office after graduation, and I am very excited for this new journey. Thank you everyone in Forté for being such a wonderful part of my college experience!"
