I have grown as a professional since joining Ellevate by making so many new connections, deepening those relationships, getting new ideas for my own content creation and for my own brand, learning new things and reinforcing core lessons I heard from new voices.

Melanie Curtis

I've been a writer for many years, posting regularly for Forbes, the Huffington Post, etc. But ever since I've started writing for Ellevate, my articles have not only been published for Forbes, but also been picked up by Entrepreneur and Thrive Global. The traction is unbelievable and I am so grateful for this platform.

Homaira Kabir

I’ve been able to build my business, my impact and mentor women as a result of being an engaged Executive Council Ellevate Member. I’ve been published on Forbes.com and Medium, I’ve been interviewed for a Podcast, and I’ve gained coaching clients as well as a corporate contract.

Ericka Spradley

As an Innovator member, I’ve gained speaking engagements and even a client who had been following my posts on the site. There’s also been ancillary branding as a result of the exposure and network of Ellevate, so I’ve absolutely benefitted from being a member.
