Ellevate Network Honored with Best for NYC Changemaker Award

Ellevate Network, the leading organization for professional women, was honored as a Best for NYC Changemaker on Tuesday by B Lab, the Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development, and Townsquared.

Yesterday, B Lab, the Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development, and Townsquared, recognized the Best for NYC’s Changemakers, businesses who are actively creating a more inclusive economy. The award recipients are redefining business success by creating quality jobs, building stronger communities, and supporting a more sustainable environment.

The 1,500+ companies that partook in the Best for NYC Challenge are all leaders in demonstrating the many ways businesses can be a force for good. A Changemaker is a business who has taken action to improve job quality for New Yorkers, has taken the Best for NYC Challenge, taken a pledge to improve one internal business practice, and fulfilled the pledge by making a change to a business practice that positively impacts employees at the company.

“Ellevate is very excited to be recognized as a Best for NYC Changemaker. We take our role as a NYC-based company seriously and constantly strive to support and grow our local community. The greatest strength that a company has is its workforce and we hope that the work Ellevate Network, B Lab, and the NYC Mayor’s Office for Workforce Development are doing to create pathways for career success, to advocate for economic opportunity, and to champion a diverse workforce and entrepreneur community will have a lasting positive impact on the world.”
