Finding My Community Connection: Homaira Kabir
Ellevate helps professional women tap into a supportive community, access resources on professional development, and find opportunities to distinguish their growth and get their name out there. We asked Homaira Kabir, a professional coach and writer, to share how her Ellevate membership has made a difference in her career.
What made Ellevate stand out to you compared to other professional networks?
I did not consider other professional networks until I came across Ellevate and it instantly spoke to me! Since beginning my membership 6 months ago, I came to realize what I’d been missing. I have met amazing people through the Squads program and learned a lot about helping other women through the Ellevate Podcast and Jam Sessions. I even contributed a couple of articles to the website, which have also been published on Forbes.
What’s next for you in your career and how will your membership help you get there?
I'm a coach running my own business and also working on my first book, which is about helping high-achieving women break through the proverbial glass ceiling. My writing is based on my research on women's confidence in the workplace. The Ellevate community will continue to be a sounding board for me. I’ll also use my membership to help me get the word out about my book by contributing articles, hosting podcasts and perhaps a webinar.
Why would you recommend Ellevate to a friend?
I would recommend Ellevate to friends for a variety of reasons.
- The Community: You can connect directly with others through events, Squads, and the Conversations messaging platform.
- The Resources: You can access an amazing collection of podcasts and videos to help with every aspect of working life.
- The Opportunities: Your work can be published on Forbes or Medium; you can also be featured as a guest speaker on the Podcast and speak to topics that interest other women in the community.
I strongly believe that as a womanhood, we're at a stage in our common journey where we're being called to raise our voices towards a better future for all. Having a platform from which to do so is the greatest gift that Ellevate provides. Because as women, we're stronger together.

Women's Wellbeing and Leadership Coach and Trainer
My work is grounded in years of research and coaching experience, and is about helping talented, high-achieving women get out of their own way by building a lasting sense of belief in themselves. I'm really passionate about this because way too many women are stuck, frustrated or drained and unfulfilled in their careers or lives, and its a huge disservice to themselves and to the organizations they work in. My next goal is to take... Continue Reading
