What quote best exemplifies your company?

“Ellevate is the largest community for women+ at work. A powerful coalition of ambitious and supportive women+ who believe there is strength in numbers. We show up for each other, helping everyone — no matter their background or aspirations — build a career they love. And, more importantly, we mobilize our collective power to change the culture of business.”

How is your product or service having a positive social and/or environmental impact?

At Ellevate Network, we’re redefining networking. Although our community is the largest of its kind, we know that navigating a sea of faceless connections is a waste of time. That’s why, at Ellevate, we prioritize the real, authentic relationships that can change your situation, can make a difference in your future.

We help women build meaningful local and digital relationships that can offer insights and open doors. Our community has reach, power and influence, while still remaining warm, welcoming and supportive.

Through collective action, Ellevate is shaping business to be more inclusive. Our goal is full and equal access to power, for everyone. Ellevate is where change makers cultivate their voice, build bridges to understand and mobilize for impact. We work with leading companies to help them hire, retain and improve diversity, equity and inclusion within their organizations.

We also approach our work through a B Corp lens. We want to have a positive impact on our community, our environment, and our team, so we’re always looking to do business the right way, not the easy way. After the pandemic began, we introduced the EllevateHER Forward fellowship, a program for women financially impacted by the pandemic to help them get their careers stabilized and back on track. We launched several new online event series to keep our community connected during these challenging times, and delivered peer mentoring through a 12-week Squads program focused on leading through uncertainty.

What is your company’s vision for the future?

Equality. We believe that when ambitious professional women get more opportunity, it ultimately benefits everyone, and leads to a more equal world. We’re committed to giving these ambitious professional women the community they need to take the next step in their careers — whatever that means to each of them.
