Fast Forward Women in Finance
Women in the workplace face unique challenges.
Forward-thinking companies recognize the benefit of gender equity and partner with Fast Forward Group for our proven approach to help women thrive and ascend in financial services and in their whole lives.
Fast Forward DEI
People from diverse populations often don’t have the benefit of role models and sponsors in executive positions. They also must navigate people’s unconscious biases and microaggressions.

Our seasoned Fast Forward coaches use their personal business experience and Fast Forward Group Power Principles and tools to ignite top talent.
We tailor each coaching engagement so your marketing and media leaders achieve meaningful growth professionally and personally.
