As women, we can band together to help each other succeed and get what we each deserve; and we know that the more women in leadership, the more we can have an effect on the rest of society.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) August 26, 2019
Ellevate Network, the leading community for women at work, is recognizing Women’s Equality Day with the launch of #IDeserveIt, a well-timed campaign to invite women to take their careers into their own hands and demand what they deserve. August 26th is Women’s Equality Day, and marks the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. It’s important to note that the passing of the 19th Amendment in practice primarily favored white women, and even with its passing, women of color continued to be discriminated against, unfairly taxed, and attacked at voting stations in many states.
The proclamation of women’s right to vote was the culmination of a massive peaceful campaign started by women which was decades in the making. Women’s Equality Day both celebrates this accomplishment as well as shines a light on the challenges women still face in our current world, and the efforts women and allies are making to reach true equality.
As part of #IDeserveIt, Ellevate Network will be hosting special events both in person through their more than 40 regional chapters and online through webinars and livestreams. These events are aimed at helping women create the future they deserve by taking actionable steps to reach their career goals.
“There’s no denying that we’ve made progress since women received the right to vote, but there’s also no denying that there is still a lot of work to be done before we can say there is true gender equality.” said Kristy Wallace, Ellevate Network CEO. “We believe we won’t achieve the change we want to see in our world if we don’t start by taking control of our own professional lives. As women, we can band together to help each other succeed and get what we each deserve; and we know that the more women in leadership, the more we can have an effect on the rest of society.”

About Ellevate Network
Ellevate Network is a community of women at work committed to elevating each other through education, inspiration, and opportunity. We believe that when ambitious women get more opportunity — to have a voice in important conversations, to have a seat at the table where decisions are made, to steer our collective economic power towards that which we care about — it ultimately benefits everyone, and leads to a more equal world. We do this by providing these women with a community to lean on and learn from. Ellevate Network also works with companies committed to gender diversity and has a proven track record of changing business culture from the inside out.
