Western Alliance Bank Joins with Ellevate Network to Support Women’s Success

Elite corporate sponsorship includes professional development and networking opportunities for Western Alliance Bank’s Women’s Alliance.

Western Alliance Bank, one of the country’s top-performing banks, is joining with Ellevate Network, the leading network for professional women, to expand professional development and networking opportunities for the bank’s employees.

The bank’s newly-organized WAL Women’s Alliance was created to engage, empower, educate, and elevate women across the company. Western Alliance’s corporate sponsorship of Ellevate Network is one more way the bank is extending its commitment to women’s success and leadership.

Ellevate Network CEO Kristy Wallace said, “We’re so pleased to be working with Western Alliance Bank and their newly created WAL Women’s Alliance. The bank’s commitment to developing leadership skills and opportunities for women in the workplace is not just good for business, it’s the right thing to do. We’re excited for the opportunity, and look forward to the positive impact of this comprehensive partnership.”

“Western Alliance is creating a community of professional women within our company to inspire, motivate and mentor through sharing experiences and increasing knowledge,” said Robyn Young, EVP and Chief Marketing Officer, Western Alliance Bank. “We can’t think of a better resource than Ellevate to support our goal of helping our organization attract, develop, support and advance women at all levels.”

This sponsorship provides Ellevate Network memberships to Western Alliance’s female employees, along with professional development training sessions, speaking engagements with Ellevate Network’s CEO Kristy Wallace, and a guest appearance by Ellevate Network’s Chair Sallie Krawcheck at a Western Alliance event to be announced in 2018.

Ellevate Network works with businesses of all sizes and in all industries to help engage their workforce, attract diverse talent, and deliver on their diversity and inclusion goals. Western Alliance Bank is one of the most recent corporate sponsors to join an elite group of companies dedicated to fostering workplace diversity and providing their employees with unique opportunities through Ellevate Network.
