Fast Forward Principles


We are on the cusp of a global paradigm shift: women command resources, skills and power at an unprecedented scale. And as they ascend, women are increasingly using their power for purpose.


Power backed by purpose propels women to create success and meaning in their own lives while bringing about a better world—often by advancing other women and girls. 


Connecting with others is the key to turning your power and purpose into action. This can be accomplished through today's women-led networks: purposeful, inclusive and impactful.
