Event description


What is ELEVATE?

'ELEVATE: Women in Digital' is an initiative from startup studio The Eleven.

Meet interesting women who are pursuing or considering careers in the tech/digital space. Exchange thoughts and brainstorm peer-to-peer advice in a warm, informal setting.

ELEVATE Summer Series

We are hosting a series of three events over the Summer, centred around a central theme of self- and career-confidence!

1. We're kicking things off with SPARK (28th June) - 'finding your 'thing' and actionable steps to do what you love every day';
2. Our second event is PIVOT (26th July): 'taking the leap of faith with a career/wider lifestyle shift';
3. We'll conclude with EMPOWER (23rd August): 'helping you develop your self-confidence to become happier and more successful, whatever that means to you!'

SPARK: 28th June 2017, 6:15pm

We are kicking off the evening with 'SPARK' an evening of inspiration and networking. Our panel comprises four successful women, who will be discussing “finding your thing”: something that instills that passion in you to drive your career forward and the steps to achieve that goal. Whether you knew it all along or something suddenly just clicks, everyone's story is different and we want to hear it. These four women have a lot to bring to the table; confidence, strength, perseverance and experience of the journey to finding what you're really passionate about.

Come join us at Hangar58 in Old Street on June 28th, listen to the discussion and share your own experiences in a fun, relaxed environment.
