ELC is a community for engineering leaders. It gathers 5-6 matched individuals on peer-led groups that join monthly, for 90 minutes, for an entire year.

The goal of the group is to discuss relevant topics and address specific issues, where each member contributes with their own experience and background to give feedback and tailored advice to the rest of the group.

Since ELC peer groups are peer-led, members will rotate to guide the group. Meetings begin with a prompt or activity. Later, each member shares their most pressing problems, to troubleshoot solutions together with the rest of the group.

Besides the group sessions, you can leverage ELC's large network of distinguished engineering leaders to learn and grow faster by getting expert, tailored advice. Additionally, there are monthly or bi-monthly featured speakers.

By being a member, you can also access one-off group sessions, special events, and a dedicated platform to have the meetings and chat with the rest of the group.

ELC's membership costs $950 per year, and it will give you access to all parts of the community. There are no different membership levels.

Peer groups have helped to connect me with other engineering managers to talk about similar problems we are facing in the workplace. Most of all, they’ve helped me to feel supported in a different and unbiased kind of way I would never be able to get at work.” -Brina Lee
