a one-day conference for 
ideamakers, dreamers,
doers, and leaders

Thank you for making Elevate Women happen!

We had such a great time in September that we’re planning another Women’s Summit for Spring 2018.

Stay tuned for more news!

We’re bringing together powerful women

We believe in the power of women’s stories

Whether building a business, raising a family, or navigating a career industry that’s primarily male-dominated, women have unique experiences and wisdom to share. True leadership and growth comes when we share that wisdom with other women who need support and encouragement.

Their stories are our stories

This one-day event will feature all female speakers sharing their stories of building a business, working in largely male-dominated fields, focusing on self-care, learning how to develop strengths, bouncing back from failures and heartbreak, and ridding ourselves of imposter syndrome. 

This isn’tour firstrodeo

Elevate Summit started as a platform of peer-to-peer learning for those working in customer support for the web. Our first event was in 2012 in San Francisco, and since then we’ve produced events in San Francisco (x4), New York, Chicago, London (x2) Portland, Philadelphia, and Palm Springs, CA. We’ve showcased over 250 speakers on stage from companies like Google, Facebook, Etsy, Medium, Buzzfeed, as well as smaller software companies and universities.

All Female Speakers

Elevate events have traditionally featured 60% female speakers, and for the first time we’ll be making that 100%! All our speakers will be coached to speak on stage, even if they’ve never done it before.

Encouraging Stories

We believe that everyone has a story to tell that can encourage or lead someone in the world. We’re dedicated to telling stories that will resonate with women no matter where they are in life.

Peer-to-Peer Learning

We’ve found that people learn best from people who are a reflection of their own lives. We focus on bringing peer leaders to the stage to empower and encourage in an accessible way.

Lasting Community

We don’t believe in mountaintop experiences, we build sustainable relationships. Our community exists to grow leaders and mentors.

Meet your new tribe

The women on stage will hail from companies committed to diversity in leadership. Our speakers will be mothers, daughters, CEOs, artists, and leaders, reflecting the varying roles that women take on everyday.

To keep this event intimate and allow for maximum networking, we’re limiting physical seats to just 100 attendees, but we’ll sell also sell live stream tickets so you can join virtually from anywhere on the planet.
