Who can join a Squad?
The Squads program is open to Ellevate Achiever, Innovator, and Executive Council members. Innovator Squads and Executive Council Squads are only made up of women with that level of membership.
Learn about Ellevate Membership or submit a ticket via our Support Center if you have questions about which membership level is right for you!
How can I get the most out of Squads?
You've probably heard that success is when opportunity meets preparation. Participating in Squads is an opportunity for you to both get a new perspective on your career insight and to support other women in the Ellevate community. The easiest way to benefit from all the advice, resources, and insights shared throughout the program is to attend the weekly Squad meetings; it's the best way for you to show fellow Squad members that you are not only invested in your success, but committed to the success of the rest of the group.
If you anticipate missing at least 3 or 4 meetings, then this may not be the best time to join a Squad.
If you know up front that you will miss a meeting or two, we still encourage you to apply to participate. After all, we know that last minute schedule changes come up. If you do experience a change in plans for a week or two, just make sure you let your Squad know ahead of time that you won't be able to attend. You can still share your ideas and feedback (even if you miss a meeting) in the Squad Group Conversation.
How often can I join a Squad?
We run the Squads program twice a year (Spring and Fall), so there will be future opportunities to participate if you cannot commit to the program schedule in a given season.
If you have any doubts about the time commitment, let us know by submitting a ticket via our Support Center. We'll work together with you to set you up for success in the program.
