Forté Foundation and IE Business School: Supporting Women.

A recent article in the Financial Times talks about the importance of helping women reach the C-suite, and eventually the Executive Board.  The author, Forté Foundation Executive Director Elissa Sangster writes:

“A number of things could be done to influence these various inflection points in a woman’s pre-MBA career path: educating and motivating women to pursue internships and majors beyond liberal arts, educating campus advisers to relay the value of an MBA to women, and steering women to resources to help them plan their college experience to better prepare for career success. Companies and organisations could offer financial incentives and support to women to relocate with their family, or significant other, to pursue a full-time MBA.”

With respect to providing financial incentives, IE Business School is now providing 3 annual scholarships for top women candidates who obtain admissions to IE Business School’s MBA or Master in Management programs.
