Ellevate Extends Successful Partnership with Guardian in Continued Support of Their Employees

Guardian has renewed its longtime affiliation with Ellevate Network to expand professional development and networking opportunities for the company’s employees, and is proud to continue their support of Mobilize Women as a gold sponsor.

Partnering with Ellevate Network gives the company’s employees the opportunity to connect with a community of professionals from various backgrounds and fields. They also retain access to Ellevate’s programs, which provide members safe spaces to share career stories, get advice and perspectives, and provide accountability to achieve career goals.

“We’re thrilled to continue our work with Guardian,” said Kristy Wallace, CEO of Ellevate Network. "Their ongoing commitment to advancing women in the workplace is an industry-leading example of putting the values of diversity, equity and inclusion at the forefront of a business. We look forward to seeing the continued positive impact of our partnership.”

“Guardian is proud to continue our partnership with Ellevate Network,” said Wendy Dowd, Senior Vice President and Chief Talent and Employee Experience Officer for Guardian Life. “Our employees develop meaningful connections through these professional networks, and we’re excited about the impact this will continue to have on our culture.

Guardian supports initiatives and strategic partnerships that strengthen Inclusion & Diversity and enhance a culture of belonging and authenticity. These partnerships provide colleagues with opportunities, education, and access, helping to eliminate barriers to professional success. The core values that guide Guardian are: people count, we do the right thing, and we hold ourselves to very high standards.”

Guardian also returns as a champion of equality in the workplace with their sponsorship of Mobilize Women 2021, increasing their commitment as a gold sponsor.

Ellevate Network works with businesses of all sizes and in all industries to help engage employees, attract diverse talent, and deliver on diversity and inclusion goals.
