About Us

Our History

Founded in 2018, GlobalForce Tech Consulting, LLC was founded to provide a safe space where collaboration, partnership, growth, and development could occur not only for the company’s clients but also for the dedicated women-led teams. After years of working in traditional software environments and not seeing the returns on the personal and professional investments, Qyana M. Stewart, CEO & Principal Consultant of GFTC, decided to create a company where she and other women in technology could utilize their gifts and talents to solve complex problems, change lives and positively impact communities through the use of technology. Designing, developing and deploying cutting-edge, innovative, safe, secure and proven software technologies is what drives us.
