Our Journey


Our Journey


NYC | 2013

I have just finished reading Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In.  Whilst I think this book is an incredible expose on how women are viewed and treated as second behind men, there is a glaring gap that is holding women back from truly being seen as equals – women sabotaging other women.

After 19 years in the tech industry I was fed up with this destructive behaviour, after personally being on the receiving end a number of times.  We are so much stronger when we come together, collaborate and help each other.

Fired up about this issue I step into an elevator in New York City and who is there but Karen Jacobsen, the Australian voice of Siri in your iPhone and GPS devices. 

By the time we get to the ground floor we discover that we share the same passion for elevating women to higher levels, and as action oriented women we decided to do something about it.

We filmed a video together titled ‘Why Women Sabotage Each Other?’  As you can imagine this created significant buzz in NYC.  Which led to an event at the Harvard Club in NYC.

The overwhelming response was to take our idea global.  What started as a passion project wanting to elevate women to higher levels and foster environments where women and men actively help each other - led to starting a global charity. 

July 2015 ELEVACAO Foundation was launched in New York City!

SO WHAT’S NEXT?

After successful launch in New York City, Sydney and Melbourne, Australia, we are expanding to Singapore in 2017. 

We have world domination plans to roll out our programs across the globe, with local chapters tailoring the programs to suit individual market requirements and managing the day-to-day operations.

Join our community and help us in the REVOLUTION that is transforming the culture and DNA of an entire generation of women!
