Ellevate & Verizon Present Professions with a Purpose: Creating a Career You Care About

Online • September 15, 2020

Verizon, Ellevate, and an incredible group of women will discuss how to create a purposeful career in corporate America and share how you can use your employee-power to enact change for good.

Tuesday, September 15, 2020 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM EDT


We’ve curated an incredible group of women to discuss how to create a purposeful career in corporate America. These leaders have identified opportunities within their companies to create change and have a positive social impact. They will share how you can use your employee-power to enact change for good.

With recent movements to create a more just world and equitable workplace, employees in corporate America are using their voices to create change. More and more, we’re seeing an increased value in working towards a purpose. Companies are recognizing that their employees are key stakeholders, and the causes that are important to employees are equally important to the company. This is a trend that gives us hope.

Join us and hear from our panel of experts on how to build a career and life you love that’s filled with meaning and purpose. You’ll learn how you can identify which companies operate with social impact in mind and how to use your power as an employee to craft a career you're proud of and a world you want to live in.

Our esteemed panel includes:

  • Adriana Dawson, Director, Community Engagement, Verizon
  • Laura Lane, Chief Corporate Affairs and Communications Officer, UPS
  • Mia Sussman, Director of Fellowships, Equal Justice Works
  • Nneka Chiazor, Vice President Public & Government Affairs, Cox Communications
  • Yvette Bourcicot, Policy Communications Director, Match Group
