Twenty Years of Investing In Your Success

Ellevate Network is hosting its first ever annual Summit to celebrate its 20 year anniversary and to convene thought leaders, activists, business leaders, and changemakers, in a forum where we can discuss actionable solutions to increasing diversity and closing the gap. It’s time to own our power and mobilize, together, to get what’s ours.

 The full day conference will feature some of the brightest minds in business and in diversity and inclusion for inspirational discussions that will lead to clear take-aways about what you, as an individual, can do today in your career, your company and your life to create change. 

We'll divide the day into opportunities to network, listen to keynotesconversations between featured speakers, and panels.
