Givitas for Women at Work

Givitas: A Network for Advancing Women at Work

Join a free, invitation-only network of leaders interested in advancing women and exploring the challenges and opportunities facing women at work today.

Ask questions, get answers, advice, introductions, or help. Then pay it forward to someone else.

Why Givitas Works

Job satisfaction, career success, and happiness in general are all results of having a strong network that allows you to get help when you need it and offer help in return.

We didn’t make this stuff up–our technology is inspired by academic research on generosity, knowledge sharing, and asking for help done by two of our co-founders: Adam Grant in his bestselling business book, Give and Take and Dr. Wayne Baker at the University of Michigan in his forthcoming book All You Have to Do is Ask.

  • "Givitas gives me an opportunity to have some unusual requests granted that I wouldn't elsewhere. It feels productive and satisfying. I feel smarter and more resourceful."

    Givitas user
  • "The hallmark of any great work culture is that people care as much about each other’s success as their own. Many organizations never reach that level of 'productive generosity’, and it’s not because people aren’t willing to give. It’s because they’re afraid to ask for help. Givitas reduces the stigma of asking for help and enables people to give in five minutes a day.“
