FTW: For the Women

Introducing FTW: For the Women, a new initiative from female-founded Swift agency and 17 local organizations that promote and practice gender equality. The 6-month goal-getting program will pair small teams of women on the rise with dedicated female mentors. Together, they’ll workshop individual challenges and create personal action plans for overcoming barriers. The program kicks off with a night of inspiration showcasing the value of accountability groups and focused mentorship.

Here's how it works:

Upon registration, participants will receive a form asking about experience, challenges and goals. FTW's collective of freaking smart ladies will use the responses to create #goals groups. On April 18, members will meet their teams , hear from women who have been there—and how they pressed forward, and receive a playbook to guide individual progress.

FTW is open to women and female-identifying folk. Participants can choose to take part in a research initiative led by Swift. Attendees of this event consent to be featured in photography.
