NEW YORK (PRWEB) December 20, 2019
Ellevate Network, the leading community for women at work, announced that Chief Executive Officer Kristy Wallace will ring the Nasdaq opening bell today, December 20.
“Soon, we will be marking the end of a decade that showed us that the status quo can and will change when individuals come together to harness their collective voice and the power of community. Even though immense progress has been made towards gender equality, there certainly is still a long way to go. We are excited to mark the beginning of a new and transformative decade for equity for all in the workplace,” said Kristy Wallace, Ellevate Network CEO. “We are honored to ring the opening bell today as we celebrate a year of far-reaching milestones and successes. We extend our deepest thanks and gratitude to our employees, our partners, and members of our community who continue to lift each other up every day.”
In 2019, Ellevate Network’s accomplishments and accolades included a spot on the Inc. 5000: The Most Successful Companies in America and two B-Corporation Best for the World Honors for meeting the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose in the categories of Workers and Governance. Kristy Wallace was recognized earlier this year by The Business Council for Peace (BPeace) as a Mentor of Distinction. More information about Ellevate Network’s programs and further accomplishments can be found in the company’s 2019 Year in Review.
The ceremony will start at 9:15 a.m with opening remarks by Kristy Wallace followed by the opening bell to ring at 9:30 a.m. ET. The ceremony can be viewed live at https://new.livestream.com/nasdaq/live and on the Nasdaq MarketSite Tower at 43rd and Broadway in New York, NY.
