It's Important To Use Your Voice Now

It's Important To Use Your Voice Now

At Ellevate Network we believe in the power of using your voice. Through the work we do here, we want to make sure that women have equal opportunity to meaningful work, are getting the equal pay they deserve, and we look to give them opportunities to band together to support one another.

In the news recently, there have been some tragic and extraordinarily poignant cases of violence and injustice in the United States, and many people are upset for good reason (learn more about the tragic shootings of Alton Sterling in LouisianaPhilando Castile in Minnesota, and the many victims in Dallas. WARNING: graphic material). We encourage you to use your voice to stand up for what you believe in, while being sensitive to the diverse community in this country.

Having a public platform at Ellevate Network gives our members and partners a unique chance to speak about the things that they are experts in and showcase their outlook on business, the world, and more. While we do not take an official stance on political races, endorse any particular movement or person, we do believe that it is important to incite change through this unique platform. We believe that diversity is a strength, and the more we can unite together, the better off we all are.

We encourage you to reach out to your local law and policy makers to tell them what change you'd like to see. We encourage you to write about issues you care about and use social media to your advantage. We encourage you to be respectful, kind, and choose your words wisely. We encourage you to stay persistent and stand up for what you believe in. 

And above all, be an advocate for change.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
