We’re proud to have developed an innovative technology solution that is having a positive impact on the advancement of women in business.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) July 11, 2018
Ellevate Network, the leading network for professional women, has opened up applications for the newest version of Squads, an innovative online program that uses technology to help professional women get ahead in business by leveraging Ellevate’s community to lean on and learn from.
Ellevate Squads are small, diverse groups of like-minded women at the same stage in their career. In the twelve-week program, participants spend 30 minutes each week video conferencing with these driven, intelligent women - it’s the best way to get the support and insight professional women need to accomplish their 2018 career goals. 78% of Squads participants said that their Squad gave them ideas, tools, and resources that they didn't have before, and 68% claim that their Squad made them more confident in their career.
Squads are available twice per year to Ellevate Network Achiever, Innovator, and Executive Council members; in order to participate in a Squad that meets this fall, your application must be submitted by July 20th.
After a successful launch in October 2017 and two program cycles completed, the Squads program has proven to provide tangible value to women in the Ellevate community. You can join the meetings online from any device, the hand-picked groups are designed for members based on specific criteria they have asked for, and each experience is curated for Squads participants based on a thoughtful application process.
Professional women in the Ellevate Network community make a commitment to invest in each others’ success, and Squads provide them an opportunity to derive and provide support within this intentional network. Women in the program have said:
"My Squad has taught me that opening up can lead to supportive exchanges of information and can help me work through my concerns. I have learned that there is power in having a Squad to be able to share with and learn from.” Read more from DaKenya here.
“It's been a wonderful experience to see each of the women rally around to support fellow squad mates in reaching goals and overcoming challenges. I feel thankful to have met such a wonderful ‘tribe’ of women.” Read more from Kelly here.
Ellevate Network CEO Kristy Wallace said, “The value of the Ellevate Network community truly shines in our Squads Program. We’re proud to have developed an innovative technology solution that is having a positive impact on the advancement of women in business. We’ve recognized a need for something like this, and after listening very closely to our community and their needs, we’ve been able to develop a program that enables professional women to meet and exceed their career goals.”
Squads applications are currently open and close on July 20th. New Squads will start meeting the last week of August, before Labor Day. You can submit your application here.
