Business Leadership Development Programs for Women

Fast Forward partners with companies who recognize the business imperative of gender equality and the commercial benefit of setting women up to thrive and ascend the talent pipeline.

Women face unique challenges in the workplace including:

>Balancing career ambitions with being the primary caregiver
>Advocating for themselves and getting heard
>Navigating unconscious bias and fewer role models and sponsors at the top
>Being overly critical of themselves

Fast Forward Women was designed by women for women to address these challenges and give women the tools to take ownership of their career and life.
