Diversity and Inclusion
In celebration of Pride, the Forward team, both in-person and remote, proudly partnered with Project Helping to assemble and send support kits to at-risk LGBTQ+ youth. LGBTQ+ youth who live in a community that is accepting and supportive reported significantly lower rates of attempting suicide compared to those who do not. These kits provide an opportunity to deal with stress, anxiety, and other mental health related struggles. By completing these kits, the team was able to provide this same support and sense of community while also sharing accessible mental health resources for LGBTQ+ youth.

Commercial Customer Service Representative

What’s the best way to have a lack of compensation and incentive conversation in your department? I went above and beyond for years doing extra work, organizations etc and nothing has been reflected in pay. I thought my 5 year was going to finally show something but it did not. I’ve inquired about pay but it’s gotten nowhere.

    The people here are the best - no exaggeration! There’s a ton of support from your own team, as well as other teams. We have plenty of opportunities to develop career skills, connect socially, give back to the community, and lots more. I also appreciate how open to feedback and new ideas the entire management team is. Bottom line - Forward is a very special place to work!


    I’ve watched the company more than double in size, and with that kind of scaling there’s always going to be some growing pains as we work out new processes and ways of doing things. It’s a fun challenge, though!
