Ellevate’s Corporate Roundtables are intimate, closed-door convenings designed to create a space for a candid discussion on the challenges women and minorities face in the business world.
Roundtables are attended by Ellevate corporate partners and leaders in business who value innovation, generating higher returns, and providing equal opportunity. Participants will gain best practices to steering business culture toward equality, and in turn will lead to positive returns, employee satisfaction, and industry leadership.
