You deserve people in your corner.

Ellevate Squads are small, diverse groups of women at similar points in their career. This twelve-week program allows you to make your future a priority - you'll spend 30 minutes each week video conferencing with driven, intelligent and supportive women.

Make your future a priority.

In your Squad you'll give and receive feedback, find new ideas, and build the confidence you need to achieve any goal.

Get a different perspective.

Things can seem a lot clearer when you look at them from another angle. Your Squad will get you - but will also offer insights and unbiased, candid advice from inside other companies.

Purposeful, focused, and human.

Your Squad creates a supportive environment for open conversations, while providing focus, actionable steps and accountability.

Great insights from many different perspectives. It's really helping me to think outside of the box. Truly enjoy the time I spend with my squad!!

Cindy Swank, Senior Consultant

I’ve found this is a great way to have dedicated professional development and career planning time built into my busy schedule.

Danielle Trull, Finance Director

This has been a great way to feel a sense of belonging to a group of like-minded people — and to get stimulated with great feedback from people with different experiences from you.

Sheena Abraham, Digital Storyteller

I would recommend joining a Squad to have a safe place for women to share their issues, goals, anxieties and knowing others are in the same position.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Ellevate Squads?

Ellevate Squads are small, diverse groups of women at similar points in their career. This online program allows you to work on your professional challenges, give and receive feedback, find new ideas, and build the confidence you need to achieve any goal you set for yourself.

Why should I join a Squad?

When you’re facing uncertainty, a fork in the road, a big decision or have set your sights on a goal that may be daunting, it helps to talk it out. Things can seem a lot clearer when you get a different perspective.

The women who participate in Squads understand we’re more powerful together; they’re in this not just for themselves but for each other. Your Squad creates a supportive environment for open conversations, while providing focus, actionable steps and accountability.

What am I committing to by applying?

Squads are powerful because the women who participate show up for each other. By applying you’re committing to supporting the women in your Squad in reaching their goals. This means:

  • Making your best effort to attend all meetings, share your perspective, and give advice
  • Listening to each others’ challenges and stories
  • Being open to receiving feedback

You will be required to attend a 30-minute Program Kick-Off video call, followed by weekly video calls over the following 12 weeks. We take your schedule availability into account when picking Squads, and in turn we ask you're honest with us and yourself when selecting your Squad Meeting Dates.

How do I join a Squad?

Squads are a benefit of Ellevate membership at the Achiever, Innovator and Executive Council levels. Ellevate members can apply for a Squad during open enrollment periods throughout the year. Sign up for The Morning Boost to receive email updates on enrollment dates!

How does the program work?

We use information from your Member Profile and your Squad application to hand-pick your Squad. We’ll nominate a Squad Mod for each Squad to set up and manage the 12-week curriculum and calls. The curriculum features topical discussions alongside Hot Seats, which are important opportunities for each member to get dedicated feedback on her current situation.

We’ll introduce you to your Squad a few weeks before the mandatory kick-off, a 30-minute video conference on a date you selected in your application. Each subsequent week at the same day and time of the week, your Squad will have a 30-minute video conference - you can join from your computer or mobile phone.

After 12 weeks, we collect your feedback and reflect on the program; you’ll stay in touch with your Squad, and can either apply for a new Squad or take a break from the program.
