About


The Ellevate Melbourne Network (Previously 85 Broads Melbourne) operates within the Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Melbourne as a student-run organisation.

We believe that women are still an under-tapped resource in the business world, and we wish to change this through our work. Ellevate has successfully run several on-campus events each year for our members – Ranging from our High Tea networking event held each March to our ‘Dinner and Conversation’ event held each September.

Our members are future CEOs, entrepreneurs, board members, and visionaries, who possess one common belief: that investing in themselves and in other young women is good business. 


We promote entrepreneurship and professional development opportunities for students through our networking events, workshops and publications and aim to inspire, empower and connect young women at the University of Melbourne.
