ELLEumni, is a showcase of the incredible women who have gone through The Propeller Experience and are ready for their next career adventure. ELLEumni is flipping the script on the job search process and putting the power back into the hands of the candidate, to drive their career their way. If an organization is interested in hiring one of these women, they need to be ready for some competition.

“We believe everyone has potential to build a career that aligns with what they want. We also know it is harder for some, than others, to achieve their version of success.

So while we have progressed the individual opportunities for women and other marginalized genders across Canada through our programming, there is more we can do through active allyship to accelerate our mission,”
