The Ellavate

Theory + Practice


The Ellavate Approach prioritizes and leverages current research and data in order to diagnose your DEI problems and to garner insight in determining a logical explanation and conclusion on it.


The Ellavate approach then synthesizes your DEI related problems and insights in order to provide tactical solutions towards measurable results designed for supporting you in achieving your dei goals.

The Ellavate Approach combines the expertise of scholarly research with the practical application that it takes to achieve meaningful and sustainable outcomes. Strategy consulting with Dr. Washington and the Ellavate Team is not an off-the-shelf experience, but instead it is tailored to each client by understanding your unique culture and partnering with organizations to reach their goals. 

Ellavate Solutions believes in taking an approach that is based in research but practical and tactical for the workplace.

Leadership Coaching

Coaching is a transformational process where you receive individualized support to help you maximize performance and grow your leadership skills in the workplace. My role as a coach is to help remove any obstacles that stand in the way of you attaining your goals. Coaching helps increase self-awareness of developmental blind spots.

Executive growth happens when clear goals, strategic development and honest feedback are intentionally aimed at your success. Ella Washington coaches executives called to lead in their organizations, who desire to build upon their greatest, most authentic selves while pushing themselves to grow to their full potential.
