Mobilize Women Summit to Take Place Online, August 24-28 Commemorating Centennial of Women’s Equality Day


Out of utmost caution for the safety and well-being of the attendees and all stakeholders, Mobilize Women Summit hosted by Ellevate Network, previously scheduled to take place in New York on October 16th, will be taking place online over the course of a full week between August 24 and August 28. The online experience will also be marking the centennial of Women’s Equality Day, the 1920 adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

“During such uncertain times when uniting as a community is more important than ever, we are ecstatic to meet thousands of attendees virtually through Mobilize Women Week this year”, says Kristy Wallace, CEO Ellevate Network. “It is ever more important that we continue to have powerful conversations around justice and equity on the centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment - an act that, while giving primarily white women voting rights, failed to protect the right to vote of millions of Black women. It is only through paying homage to the memories of Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells, Mary Church Terrell, and other suffragists that we will advance the conversation on equity.”

Designed to create a space for thoughtful discussions on pressing issues, Mobilize Women has become the standard for diversity on stage and has been recognized as one of the leading conferences of its kind.

Mobilize Women Week is a multi-day experience designed as a space for authentic, courageous, and invigorating conversations. Over the course of five days and ten different sessions, attendees will hear thought-provoking discussions from diverse perspectives and leave with action-oriented solutions to tackle some of today’s biggest challenges in the workplace and within our communities. Mobilize Women brings together leaders in business, sciences, media, sports, politics and more who, like the audience, are passionate about using their influence and social capital for equity.

Mobilize Women Week is free of charge for attendees. Registration and more information can be found on
