About Ellevate Network

Ellevate Network is a global women’s network, serving as the essential resource for professional women who create, inspire and lead. Their mission is to close the gender achievement gap in business by providing women with a community to lean on and learn from. Together they #InvestInWomen

We believe in the positive impact of women in business and now, more than ever, is the time to close the gender achievement gap. Our mission has always been at the center of our business and our B Corp certification further solidifies this commitment and connects us with a movement using the power of business to drive positive social and environmental change.

The Change We Seek®

The world is a better place when women are connected. Ellevate leverages the power of their community to inspire women to become leaders in their field and mobilize them to drive change within their businesses and to invest back in other women.

Currently, women represent only 15% of Fortune 500 corporate executive officers. Now, more than ever, is the time to close the gender achievement gap in business. Study after study shows that companies with more diverse management teams have higher ROEs, lower earnings volatility, greater innovation, better stock market returns and greater client focus.

Ellevate Network seeks to change the gender landscape of business.

What makes us a better company?
