Earlier this month, 22 female leaders across Veritas gathered with members of the Veritas Leadership Team and representatives from Stanford University to celebrate the kickoff of eleVate, the company’s new women’s leadership development program.
eleVate is a 12-month talent development program that Veritas launched in association with Stanford Business School. This unique program focuses on director and above-level leaders and takes participants through a combination of Stanford and Veritas learning experiences to help advance their leadership skills. Participants were chosen from around the globe to represent their business units in intense leadership classes and collaborative projects.
The global Veritas participants gathered at the Stanford campus and Veritas headquarters for two days of networking and an introduction to what’s ahead for them over the next 12 months. They spent time with Stanford Business School faculty and the Veritas Leadership Team, who will be engaged in the program as sponsors, meeting with the participants for quarterly 1:1’s. Participants will also attend fireside chats, engage in training, conduct group discussions, and participate in annual program events and networking sessions.
The event buzzed with energy and excitement, with positive feedback from participants looking forward to this incredible opportunity to grow and challenge each other over the next year.
“I’m so excited to be a part of the inaugural class of eleVate. The thought and heart that went into creating this program is so inspiring, from the rollout and curriculum to the selection of this cross-functional, global team. I’m truly honored to be included and can't wait to go on this journey with these amazing women leaders." – Americas Regional Sales Leader Elizabeth Alexander.
“What an amazing opportunity to meet, network, and learn from talented women! The speakers and sessions that took place over these two days were inspirational, encouraging, and powerful. Veritas investing in developing female leaders will have a positive impact in future generations and the transformation of the organization. Thank you, Veritas!” – Sr. Director, Business Process Karima Curioca.
“eleVate has been the best development and empowerment program I’ve ever attended so far, and I’m only at the beginning of it! I’m very much looking forward to eleVating myself and my career in Veritas with the support of this program.” – Global Channel and Alliances Leader Yudum Yonak.
