Ellevate’s greatest strength lies in the power of our community to come together and Mobilize.

Ellevate Network, the leading community for women+ in the workplace, will be expanding their Mobilize Women Summit to be a year-round experience featuring events dedicated to openly discussing action-oriented solutions to some of today’s largest challenges in the workplace.

Mobilize Women is a movement based on Ellevate Network’s purpose of achieving equality for all, by giving diverse voices, especially those of women, a seat at the table where decisions are made.

The kick-off event of the 2021 experience, Mobilize Women: Building on the Momentum of a Movement on February 11, will be focused on racial equity and cultivating necessary business and organizational changes to eradicate systemic racism. The event will feature panelists Aundrea Cline-Thomas (CBS2 News), Chivona Newsome (Black Lives Matter Greater NY), Daisy Auger-Dominguez (VICE Media Group), and Katrina Jones (Amazon Experts).

“The opportunity for creating change has never been greater. The world is watching as the inequities of our society and workplaces are laid bare for all to see. Now is the time to come together. To amplify diverse voices. To listen with the intent to understand. To connect with others and not only map out a plan for change but to take active steps towards creating true equality in the world. I see every day the myriad of ways that the Ellevate community is working to change the face of business. Ellevate’s greatest strength lies in the power of our community to come together and Mobilize.”

Ellevate will be offering free access to all Mobilize Women experiences including Mobilize Women: Building on the Momentum of a Movement and Mobilize Women Week from June 21-25.

Recognized as one of the leading conferences of its kind, the first Mobilize Women Summit was hosted in 2017 and was initially designed to create a space for thoughtful discussions on pressing issues. As the world shifted and people, especially those identifying as a woman, were impacted heavily by the pandemic, Ellevate opted to host their 2020 Summit online throughout the course of a full week to bring together leaders in business, science, media, sports, politics, and more for authentic and thought-provoking conversations.

The Mobilize Women program is possible through the generous support and sponsorship of numerous organizations. For Mobilize Women Week, Ellevate’s presenting sponsor is RBC Wealth Management - U.S, and supported by Accenture, Guardian Life, Verizon, BakerHostetler, Diageo, Robinson+Cole, and Mutual of Omaha.
