Ellevate Network Launches New Programs to Support Managers, Senior Executives, Rising Leaders, Entrepreneurs and Career Changers


Ellevate Network, the leading community for women in the workplace, introduced its new resources and programming to support women+ through different stages of their careers.

Ellevate’s Programs bring together women+ who are facing similar career topics and questions. Program participants tackle their career challenges together at a variety of workshops and community-driven conversations to focus on skills development and get career questions answered by peers, as well as guest experts.

Ellevate Programs are designed to provide different opportunities to listen, learn and engage in both large and small group discussions. Through a variety of community building and learning experiences, participants have found new opportunities for employment, board positions, promotions and career advancement.

“Research shows the women need two networks to achieve professional success. A large and broad network connects to a multitude of career opportunities and perspectives. Equally important, a small, close-knit circle of trusted relationships ensure the tailored advice, and support necessary to succeed. This is what we’re building at Ellevate - a large community that is diverse yet feels small and actionable,” says Ellevate CEO, Kristy Wallace. “Actively participating in Ellevate programs is the best way to meet and build authentic relationships with peers who understand the challenges you are facing. In each of our programs, you’ll have the opportunity to learn alongside other women who are committed to supporting one another.”

The current roster includes programs designed for Rising Leaders, Career Changers, Managers, Entrepreneurs and Executives.

To tackle the challenges each of these groups faces, Ellevate Network will offer within each year-long program the following community building and learning experiences:

  • Virtual Roundtables: the backbone of Ellevate programs, offer a safe space to drop in on open, expert-led dialogue with an intimate and diverse group facing similar challenges.
  • Ellevate Squads: Ellevate’s signature 12-week peer mentoring program in which small, diverse groups of women spend 30 minutes each week video conferencing and working on their professional challenges.
  • Webinars and Workshops: hands-on, interactive learning opportunities on different topics --from getting over imposter syndrome to building your personal brand.
  • Virtual Mentoring Meetups: Ellevate’s unique speed dating approach to mentoring connects program participants with a slate of ambitious, supportive experts, allies, mentors, and sponsors
  • Virtual Community Chats: happy hours, book clubs, and other experiences designed to build relationships with women+ who are in the same geographic region, even if online.
