EllevateHER - 2018 is the Year of Inclusiveness
The Ellevate community is a special one. Smart, ambitious, professional women around the world join us every day to invest in themselves, their career success (meaning more money, more flexibility, more impact, and more happiness), and in other women.
Each year Ellevate receives many requests from women who believe in the power of the Ellevate community and yet are facing financial hardships that prevent them from joining the Network. Although we wish we could make membership free for all, significant resources are required to be able to operate a network like ours, and to continue to provide world-class events, services and innovative products to help professional women succeed.
Yet building a more inclusive community is one of our core values and guiding principles. We believe so much in the power of the Network, in the strength of our community and in the change we can create in the world: making it a better, more equitable place. And we believe women who need it the most should have access to the community.
That’s why we are announcing EllevateHER, a program focused on paying it forward and granting memberships to those who can’t afford it.
EllevateHER will grant Achiever level memberships to women who could benefit from the network, but can’t afford the cost. We will focus on serving groups who would benefit significantly from Ellevate: veterans, women in transition, those working at non-profits, recent graduates, women still in school, those whose current income will not allow them to join.
Applications for EllevateHER will be open from February 5th, 2018 to February 19th, 2018. You can submit your application here.
If you know someone who could benefit from EllevateHER, please let her know and spread the word -- she can sign up to receive The Morning Boost so she knows when applications open.
