ELEVATE is a professional leadership development program aimed at addressing gender barriers in business and improving understanding of women in executive management roles. The program focuses on the ways in which women in leadership positions can influence business agility and longevity, and aims to help participants overcome any perceived gender biases that may hinder their ability to work effectively with female colleagues or superiors.
Elevate includes leadership programs for women and mentorship applying the Harvard Adaptive Leadership Framework. It mobilizes CEOs to commit to gender diversity and become advocates.
CIRCLE launched ELEVATE in 2017 with the aim to promote gender diversity and grow women leaders with the help of founding champions including the CEO’s of Unilever, Jazz, National Food, Standard Chartered and Mitsubishi.
Elevate is being relaunched in 2023 with support from English Biscuit Manufacturers (EBM) and Unilever Pakistan Limited.
