Ellevate Network helps Eaton deploy in-house corporate squads


Top multi-national power management company Eaton is pleased to announce it has continued its affiliation with Ellevate Network for a second year. The partnership provides a continuation and expansion of Ellevate’s Corporate Squads Program, a program dedicated to the professional development and networking of their top talent after a successful pilot in Fall, 2020.

Corporate Squads is a 12-week peer-mentoring program that brings together small groups of rising female leaders to collaborate, support each other in their roles, and identify actions they can take toward solving company challenges. Eaton deepens its commitment to its employees by continuing to invest in this important experience.

Eaton participants will also have full access to the full suite of Ellevate resources, including in-person and virtual leadership roundtables, workshops, mentoring opportunities and more.

“We’re so pleased to work with Eaton for the second year, especially in an expanded capacity after the success of our Corporate Squads pilot program,” said Ellevate Network CEO Kristy Wallace. “Eaton is a company that truly invests in their employees, and this commitment is just one example of their leadership in working toward diversity and equity for all.”

“Eaton has seen continued success with the Squads program as part of a broader leadership development program through our women’s iERG,” said Mary Kim Elkins, Senior Vice President, Taxes and executive sponsor of the global women’s iERG at Eaton. “Throughout the challenges presented to us this past year, Squads has allowed us to bring employees together and form closely knit networks of talented women from across the company. We have already seen these women helping each other and the broader Eaton community in incredible ways. It is exciting to witness the growth of our professional development opportunities at Eaton.”
