It’s time to mobilize.

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

We believe that when ambitious professional women who share our values get more opportunity — to have a voice in important conversations, to steer our collective economic power towards that which we care about — it ultimately benefits everyone, and leads to a more equal world.

To us, that means more opportunities for everyone. It means no more harassment. It means equal pay. It means a fair shake at success. It means access to the resources you need, wherever and whoever you are.

We know women are powerful, now it’s time to use that power to build the world we want to see. It’s time to mobilize.

Topics we’ll cover
Changing the Culture of Business (From Inside Out)
How can you use your social capital inside your organization? Sometimes we think change has to come from those at the top, but what is the impact middle managers, first time managers, and those coming up the ranks can have in the culture of business? And how can we support them along the way.

Intersectional Identities
Diversity has become a buzzword today–but when people talk about diversity they tend to focus on a few things — and many of these things are rooted in stereotypes. The reality is diversity has many layers, and it’s this intersectionality which makes us all different. How can we work to eradicate these stereotypes when we talk about diversity and use this mindset to help us shape a truly inclusive future?

Tackling The World’s Biggest Problems
Global warming, trash island, natural disasters…. there are so many destructive things that humans have done to world that seem irreversible, and have devastating effects on our future generations. Luckily for us, the this session focuses on tackling the big issues at hand, and how you can work towards a better future every day and provide real solutions to real problems – no matter what sector you are in.

Innovating The Future
They say that children are the future for a reason —they are not as restricted by the ideas many adults have that hold us back from thinking in an innovative, unique way, the world is limitless to them. We’ve learned through recent events that kids bring smart solutions to problems, prompting us to ask:“Why didn’t we think of that before?”
