On March 11, 2013, Dr. Angelica Perez-Litwin, founder and CEO of the ELLA Institute, opened the virtual doors to the institute’s online network. The ELLA Institute is an online community of mission-driven women who are serious about advancing their careers. The new network allows women like you to connect with other professionals, leaders, experts, mentors and coaches from across the country and around the world!
Here are the top 10 reasons you should join the Ella Institute:
- Join a community created by and for Latinas – ELLA Institute understands what Latinas want and need from a professional network. The institute is a response to the gender and ethnic disparities in leadership roles across top companies, organizations and academic institutions. Women, especially Latinas, are grossly underrepresented in executive suites and at boardroom tables.These disparities have direct implications on the earning potential, career advancement and leadership influence of Latinas across the country.
- Gain access to professional development opportunities – ELLA Institute takes a comprehensive approach to career and leadership development. In formulating what women need to advance their careers to the next level, ELLA Institute examines the sociocultural, organizational and personal elements that impact career success. The dynamic interplay of these elements is considered when developing effective programs and curricula.
- Build authentic relationships – The ELLA Institute is so much more than a LinkedIn for Latinas. Latinas do so much more than make connections; we build thriving communities. The relationships you form in the ELLA Institute will likely emerge from collaborative conversations, engaging group discussions or dynamic causes. Your fellow members are likely to become your closest friends and confidants.
