What is Forward Ladies?  (

Forward Ladies is a global community of women working in partnership with leaders and progressive organisations to close the gender gap in business.  It’s mission is to connect women to opportunities and expertise that will empower them to reach the top in their business lives.

Forward Ladies has grown from humble beginnings into a global professional networking platform. 

The founder, Griselda Togobo, is an international corporate consultant and trainer. She is also a multi-faceted entrepreneur, engineer and chartered accountant.
