Ellevate Network Launches Program to Expand Access to Professional Development Resources for Underrepresented Populations of Women

Share Article

The EllevateHER Program will connect recipients with a powerful network of women to lean on and learn from as well as access to professional development resources.

Building a more inclusive community is a core value of Ellevate Network's mission.

This is one of the key ways we will be creating a more inclusive community in 2018, and we believe that by diversifying our community and bringing more voices to the table, we will have a more positive and equal future for women in business.

Ellevate Network, the leading network for professional women, opens applications today for the EllevateHER program which will grant 1,000 Achiever level memberships to women who could benefit significantly from the network. The program will focus on serving groups who would benefit the most from Ellevate Network membership: veterans, women in transition, those working at non-profits, recent graduates, women still in school, and those whose current income will not allow them to join.

As a certified B Corporation and Women Owned Business, Ellevate Network is actively making business decisions that are true to the company’s Values to maximize its impact in the world. Building a more inclusive community is core to this vision and accelerating the impact of Ellevate globally.

“We are proud to be in a position as a company to provide the EllevateHER opportunity to professional women that do not have the means pay for membership on their own,” said Ellevate Network CEO Kristy Wallace. “This is one of the key ways we will be creating a more inclusive community in 2018, and we believe that by diversifying our community and bringing more voices to the table, we will have a more positive and equal future for women in business.”

Applications for EllevateHER open today and close on February 19th. Those awarded with a membership will be notified on February 27th, and their memberships will become active on March 1st. You can apply here.

Ellevate Network encourages people to share this application with their networks, especially if you reach a population of women that is vulnerable to financial hardships or is systematically shut out of career development opportunities, so that the organization is enabled to maximize the EllevateHER program’s impact.
