Business Leadership Development Programs for Women

In today’s always on, never done work culture, women often feel that the cost of professional success is personal sacrifice. Our program was created by women for women to address the unique challenges many face to thrive and ascend, including:

>Balancing the role of primary caregiver with your career ambitions – especially during the pandemic
>Finding your voice and advocating for what you want and need
>Navigating unconscious bias plus fewer role models and sponsors at the top
>Being overly critical of yourself

What makes our program unique is our whole life approach and Buddy System for peer coaching and ongoing support.

“The reviews were off the charts – 4.8/5 which is unheard of at Google. The lasting impact showed up not only in the business results but also in the connection among the women.”

“After getting extremely positive feedback, we wanted to scale Fast Forward Women so more women globally could experience it. Fast Forward created a virtual version of its program that participants say is empowering and has given them the confidence to pursue their Bold Visions.”
