Levo is a growing community of professional women seeking advice, inspiration, and the tools needed to succeed.
Levo League is your career cockpit for the first phase of your professional journey. During these years, you decide what you want to do, who you want to be, and how you're going to get there. Success means something different to each of us. We hope the support from Levo's community of like-minded women will be invaluable in helping our members achieve their career goals.
Levo is the Latin root of the word “elevate,” which captures our mission for professional women to ascend together, strengthening us all in the quest to achieve our career dreams.

Finding a temporary contracting position on Levo League with Gryphn.co really helped pull me through a period of unemployment. Literally — at the end of my 3 months they hired me on full time! I would recommend Levo League's job listings to anyone. The companies offering positions (even internships!) are unique, the jobs posted are modern and interesting. I found my perfect fit and have never been happier at work!

Dinner with LocalLEVO members was like having dinner with women I had known forever. We talked about everything from careers to dating in a supportive environment that we all were able to contribute to and learn from.

Levo advice, office hours, opportunities, and inspiration bring me motivation and encouragement each day.
— Michelle Liu, Washington D.C.
Using the resources I found on Levo, I had the confidence to ask for 20% more than the original offer I received from a new organization. I was able to work out a deal 15% higher and negotiate more vacation days per year. I knew that my experience was valuable to the organization and I deserved a stronger offer.
