At Ellevate Network, we’re committed to raising our collective voices, to support women, and to use our community as a catalyst for change.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) January 09, 2018
In 2017, women drove change in the world like never before. We saw the top grossing films were fronted by women, more women elected to the Senate, people speaking up about the all too frequent discrimination they face with #MeToo, and approximately 4 million people participating in the Women’s March globally.
In 2018, in the midst of the Times Up movement and a global change towards a more gender equal balance of power, Ellevate Network is calling on women to take control of their professional success and to support other women along the way.
On Thursday, January 11th Ellevate Network will be hosting an event titled Defining Success on Your Own Terms with Sallie Krawcheck & Friends, that is being livestreamed globally. Thousands are expected to tune into the free livestream. The event’s special guests include:
- Chair of Ellevate Network and CEO + Co-Founder of Ellevest, Sallie Krawcheck
- Ellevate Network CEO, Kristy Wallace
- Founder, Creator, and Author of Always a Bridesmaid for Hire, Jen Glantz
- Executive Director of the Girl Project, Tara Abrahams
- Director of Innovation, Change Management, & Strategy of Ralph Lauren, Sirat Babbar- Curnow
In the current workplace, it’s no longer realistic to envision your career in a linear way -- and in order to stay relevant and fulfilled at work, you need to understand that success comes in many forms. This event will showcase the experiences of impressive professional women who have vastly different career paths and have made their careers work for them. Providing opportunities for women to learn from each other is a key part of the Ellevate Network experience. The community shares strategies, envisions a new future for professional women, and supports women in their careers. Ellevate Network will be releasing a series of e-books that showcase similar stories of professional women making their careers work, adapted from their podcast “The Ellevate Podcast: Conversations with Women Changing the Face of Business,” entitled, “Women in Power: Defining Success on Their Own Terms,” which will be released later this month.
Ellevate Network CEO Kristy Wallace said, “2017 was a pivotal year for women and their influence on the rest of the world. At Ellevate Network, we’re committed to using that momentum to raise our collective voices, to support women, and use our community as a catalyst for change.
We’re really looking forward to hosting Defining Success on Your Own Terms with Sallie Krawcheck & Friends, where we will be discussing how career success is defined differently for every woman and strategies to make your best life happen. We believe that each woman investing in herself is the beginning of making 2018 the best year for women yet.”
Ellevate Network stays strong to their Company Values & Guiding Principles by committing to working together to make the world a better place for women, and a brighter future for all of us.
