Student Testimonial

Jenna Callan 2021

Jenna Callan ’21 (MBA)

Forté Women's MBA Leadership Conference Attendee – 2019

“Attending the Forte MBA Women’s Leadership Conference was the first time I truly felt like an MBA. I had imposter syndrome beyond belief, but being with my classmates for the first time and hearing their advice and stories helped me to see that I was truly a part of the MBA world. Every speaker inspired me and energized me, every panel gave me nuggets of wisdom, and the career fair helped me to see the power in my own story and that I actually DID belong there! I cannot imagine a better or more empowering kickoff to the MBA, and I hope each and every one of you have that same transformative experience.”
