Ellevate Network Announces Sixth Annual Mobilize Women to Be Held June 8, 2022

Ellevate Network, the largest community of women+ at work, will be hosting Mobilize Women on June 8, 2022.

At Mobilize Women, 30+ thought-leaders and experts will address solutions to key barriers present in today’s world: social justice, the role of companies in employee mental health, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on gender equity, and power dynamics that shape our society.

Mobilize Women will include ample opportunity for women+ and allies from all industries to come together, listen with intent, contribute their voice, and map out a plan for a more equitable world.

Mobilize Women 2022 will be free of charge and open to the public thanks to presenting sponsors Verizon and RBC Wealth Management - US, plus additional sponsors Mutual of Omaha, NFP, and (en)Courage Coaching. Those interested in learning more about sponsoring Ellevate’s Mobilize Women can contact Madeline Kelley at

“As our world continues to grapple with constant changes to the state of work, we need to keep challenging each other to think bigger and make daily strides toward equity. That, at its core, is what makes Mobilize Women a landmark experience and we could not do it without the companies supporting this event,” said Kristy Wallace, CEO of Ellevate Network. “Throughout Mobilize Women, we’ll be pushing against the status quo and toward change. Our attendees will hear tough, real conversations that will help them grow, thrive, expand their minds, and feel supported in their efforts. We can only create a better future by standing together — and would encourage companies to join us in our mission to change the culture of business.”
