Ellevate Network Announces the 2019 Mobilize Women Summit


Ellevate Network, the leading network for professional women, will hold its third annual Mobilize Women Summit in June, designed to bring together leaders in business, media, sports and more to discuss some of the most pressing issues facing the world today. Mobilize Women is a movement based on Ellevate Network’s purpose of achieving equality for all, by giving diverse voices, and particularly those of women, a seat at the table where decisions are made. The summit will focus on the issues that matter most to professional women – everything from redefining activism and innovating for the future to the power of empathy and effectively leading cross-generational teams.

Ellevate believes that when ambitious, professional women who value integrity, respect and action get more opportunities — to have a voice in important conversations, to steer our collective economic power towards that which we care about — it ultimately benefits everyone and leads to greater equality. The summit is intentionally focused on creating space for the diverse perspectives of people who are not typically brought into the gender equality conversation and finding action-oriented solutions to some of our biggest issues of inequality, so that we can work collectively to build a better world.

The 2019 Mobilize Women Summit will take place on Friday, June 21st, 2019 at Metropolitan West in New York City and will be streamed live globally to expand the influence of the movement.

Ellevate Network CEO Kristy Wallace said, “After two successful years, Mobilize Women has proven to be a driving force for equality and a source of both inspiration and action-oriented solutions for attendees and beyond. This year, the summit will be bigger than ever, bringing more change-makers and thought-leaders into the same room to unite and raise their voices for equality. At Ellevate, we specialize in creating the space for intentional community, and we are looking forward to hosting our most impactful program yet with Mobilize Women 2019.”
