Get Directions

Many times in our careers, from the first job search through the pursuit of the next big ring or promotion, we encounter challenges that can slow us, stifle us, or shut us down altogether. When we find ourselves facing an obstacle, we can feel isolated, stressed and weary. In moments like those, it’s good to know we are not alone. We have the ability to lean on the experience of those who have already traveled the path we’re on and who have encountered similar obstacles. 

We are inviting all the women of Charlotte to come and join us on April 26 as we celebrate the one-year anniversary of Ellevate Charlotte with a phenomenal panel of accomplished women who will share their experiences overcoming obstacles in their careers. Ellevate’s own Sallie Krawcheck will be here with us for the discussion and to share her own insights. 

This year we will have a panel discussion with an impressive list of guests including:

  • Sallie Krawcheck, CEO and Co-Founder - Ellevest and Chairman - Ellevate Network
  • Michelle Lee, President – Community Banking, Eastern Region, Wells Fargo
  • Andrea H. Bierce, Managing Director, Gupton Marrs International, Inc.
  • Chris McLeod, JD, President - Giving Matters
  • Julia Landauer, Chief Executive Officer - Julia Landauer Racing, LLC
  • Hannah Beavers, Founder and Executive Director, Glorious - Educating Children, Empowering Communities

Tickets for the event are $40 for members and $50 for non-members and include delicious appetizers and your first glass of wine (or beer).

Bring your challenges, obstacles and questions and help us celebrate one year of connecting, learning and investing in Charlotte’s professional women.
