We believe that the collective power of communities - the Ellevate community of professional women worldwide as well as Ellevate’s community of partners and allies - will close the gender gap.
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 08, 2016
Ellevate Network, the leading professional women’s networking group with chapters worldwide, has announced its list of Top Resources for Professional Women.
Ellevate Network believes that gender parity is key to creating a better world and that the power of community will help to achieve equality. Ellevate works with companies that share these values to lift up professional women. This includes companies that are elevating women to senior leadership, connecting women to board opportunities, highlighting strong female role models, creating better work environments such as flex work and remote work, and giving women voices in the media.
Ellevate recognizes that through the power of community, women will be connected to jobs and board seats, supported in career growth, counseled through starting that first company, and more. By providing these capabilities, and working with companies and investors to help them see the opportunity, by truly investing in women - Ellevate acts as an active and positive part of that change.
Ellevate Network President Kristy Wallace said, “Ellevate Network knows that gender parity is critical to creating better companies, economies, and families. We believe that the collective power of communities - the Ellevate community of professional women worldwide as well as Ellevate’s community of partners and allies - will close the gender gap. This is why we’re working closely with companies tackling gender gaps for professional women.”
