Forté Foundation

Our Partnership

In May 2018 PHOENIX EXECUTIVE joined forces with the Forté Foundation in the United States to ensure more women on Board.


The GBRW (Global Board Ready Women) initiative was created by Candace Johnson. She has personally seen to it that over 8000 women at international level across industries, sectors and continents have been vetted and screened. This has led to an amazing database of 4000 women who all have the experience, the stamina, the will and the wisdom to inspire organisations across the globe.

4000 Board Ready Women can make a difference to any organization and will help companies to grow in a sustainable, gender and diversity friendly way.

We are excited to be able to play a key part in this inspiring initiative, making a positive impact for our and next generations, to ensure that on each company Board there is a good female representation. We are proud to be part of a positive change movement.

As Winston Churchill once said : “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.”

PHOENIX EXECUTIVE is taking the executive search leadership on this for EMEA. As such, search and corporate companies can contact us directly to fulfil their Board role needs. We will partner with you to find you the perfect candidate based on your specific criteria.
