Seneca Women is a global leadership platform centered on the principle that advancing women and girls will fast forward us to a more equitable and prosperous world. Seneca is led by co-founders Ambassador Melanne Verveer and Kim Azzarelli, co-authors of the best-selling book Fast Forward: How Women Can Achieve Power and Purpose, and Commissioner Sharon Bowen, former Commissioner of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). 

Seneca Point Global is a leading strategic advisory firm focused on advising companies and public sector institutions seeking to advance women and girls. Seneca’s co-founders have helped launch and/or implement some of the largest media, philanthropic and business initiatives focused on women.

Based on the book Fast Forward, the Seneca Connect app connects women to each other and to opportunities to fast-forward women and girls by showcasing women owned businesses, impactful nonprofits, curated events, research and news. Designed to advance women in the economy and in the world, the app provides a new tool that helps women use their power for purpose and weigh in on important and timely topics.
