We believe women are awesome.
We believe that networking and lifelong learning are keys to success. We believe women are still a largely untapped resource in the business world and in society at large – and that it’s time to change that.
And we believe that by promoting networking and education for professional women, working with companies and investors to help them see the opportunity, and by truly investing in our women- we can be an active and positive part of that change.
Ellevate is a global professional women’s network dedicated to these beliefs and to the economic engagement of women worldwide. The most expansive and diverse network of its kind, our community is made up of successful, motivated and passionate professional women from various industries and walks of life with one common belief – that investing in themselves and in other women is good business.
Our members are groundbreakers, thought leaders, CEOs, entrepreneurs, board members, and visionaries. They are alumnae and students of some of the world’s leading academic institutions. Some are at the top of their fields, and others are on their way. With 34,000 members in 130 countries, our community is large and growing by the day. Join Us
