Ellevate Network Welcomes CIBC U.S. in its Mission to Provide Greater Opportunities for Professional Women

CIBC announces partnership with Ellevate Network, a global professional community focused on advancing women in the workplace and helping companies succeed.


CIBC U.S. joins the elite organizations already working with Ellevate Network to help provide expanded opportunities for women. CIBC is a leading North American financial institution and provides tailored commercial, wealth management, personal and small business financial solutions, as well as cross-border banking services to clients with North American operations.

Through this partnership, CIBC’s female employees will have the opportunity to form meaningful connections with other ambitious professional women in the Network, gain access to Ellevate’s tools and resources, including webinars, articles and podcasts, and build and hone the skills needed to advance their careers. CIBC will also be sponsoring three Ellevate networking events in their offices in NYC, Boston, and Chicago for CIBC employees and Ellevate members.

“Partnerships with organizations like Ellevate Network help us create opportunities for women at CIBC to develop their unique skills and talents,” said Vicki Znavor, Chief HR Officer, CIBC U.S. “We believe this partnership supports our mission of creating an environment where each employee can bring her authentic self to work.”

“We are very pleased to have CIBC U.S. as a new corporate partner,” said Kristy Wallace, CEO, Ellevate Network. “CIBC’s commitment to helping the professional women in their organization develop the skills they need to succeed sets a strong example in the industry. CIBC understands the value of inclusion and advancement of women in the workplace, and the crucial role of corporate organizations in boosting the careers of their female employees. We’re happy to be a part of their community of professional women to lean on and learn from.”
