What are Ellevate Squads?
So, what are Ellevate Squads?
Ellevate Squads are small, diverse groups of women that commit to supporting each other with achieving their goals. From making a career change, to starting a business, to landing a leadership role, the Squad program is designed to match you with other ambitious, driven women who are committed to supporting you and to changing the status quo.
How much time should I set aside to participate?
The Squads program is designed to make it easy for you to invest in your professional development on a regular basis. You will spend 30 minutes each week video conferencing with women across different industries, companies, and backgrounds.
Before each Squad meeting, you should plan to set aside up to 30 minutes preparing questions, feedback, and advice to share with fellow members. The program runs for 12 weeks and we currently offer the program twice a year.
Why should I join a Squad?
Research shows that belonging to a group of supportive, like-minded peers helps you identify and achieve goals that would be difficult to reach on your own. A strong group acts as a support system, gives you feedback, and holds you accountable. Together, the group’s knowledge, network, and power is greater than the sum of its parts.
At Ellevate, we’re dedicated to growing a community where you can learn both from experts and from peers. We created Squads to offer you a safe and accessible environment to learn from you peers, expand your network, and increase your confidence.
Squads not only make investing in yourself a habit, they make the most of that investment.
