The Forté Foundation

Since 2004, Johnson and The Forté Foundation have partnered to provide women with the tools and resources they need to achieve success in the business world.

The Forté Foundation was called to action in 2001 by the landmark research study, “Women and the MBA: Gateway to Opportunity”, which explored why fewer women attend schools of business than schools of medicine or law. The Forté Foundation was founded in 2001 to address this inequity and its impact on the business landscape.
