Sallie Krawcheck, Ellevate

Krawcheck’s purchase of women’s networking club 85 Broads, which she rebranded as ‘Ellevate’, has helped open up chances to professional women across the globe. In a world in which equal pay and opportunities have still not been achieved, her efforts are a welcome step

The chair of Ellevate – a global professional network for women – has a strong corporate history of influencing and producing some outstanding results on Wall Street and beyond. Since turning her hand to her current project, Krawcheck has taken to social media through LinkedIn and Twitter, where the well informed and progressive direction of Ellevate is communicated to businesswomen everywhere. The network invites members from all walks of society and all rungs of the corporate ladder to join and succeed.
