We use the power of community to help you take the next step in your career. We show up for each other, helping everyone — no matter their background or aspirations — build a career they love. And, more importantly, we mobilize our collective power to change the culture of business. Although our community is the largest of its kind, we know that navigating a sea of faceless connections is a waste of time. That’s why, at Ellevate, we prioritize the real, authentic relationships that can change your situation, can make a difference in your future. We help women+ build meaningful local and digital relationships that can offer insights and open doors. Our community has reach, power and influence, while still remaining warm, welcoming and supportive. Ellevate is where change makers cultivate their voice, build bridges to understand, and mobilize for impact. We work with leading companies to help them hire, retain, and improve diversity, equity, and inclusion within their organizations. - Ellevate Network (formerly known as 85 Broads) was started in 1997 by Janet Hanson, one of the first women to be promoted to sales management at Goldman Sachs. Janet, who had taken a leave from work, found herself (like many of us do at one time or another) in need of some clarity, and wondering “what’s next?” She realized quickly that in order to gain the insights she needed and build a new path, she needed people who could shed some light. And that’s how 85 Broads came to life — an unofficial network for women who worked or had worked at Goldman Sachs. The name, 85 Broads, was a reference to Goldman Sach’s old headquarters located at 85 Broad Street in New York City. The network quickly expanded to include women in other companies and in all industries. The network was rebranded to Ellevate Network in 2014, reflecting the evolution of the community from its finance roots to a more widely diverse group of ambitious, powerful, supportive, and kind women who believe that, together, we can change the culture of business.

Annie Dean and Anna Auerbach believe the leadership pipeline is broken and that having flexible work opportunities for ambitious women would be the way to fix it. After both of their high achieving careers (Annie is a lawyer and Anna a consultant who then worked in the nonprofit sector) they started their own company, Werk, with the aim of helping women stay in the workforce and not opt-out when they become mothers. In this episode, Annie and Anna share their mission, why we need to take the term “mommy track” out of commission, why guilt and shame should not be a part of flexible work arrangements and their advice for new and aspiring entrepreneurs.
