While there have been many advancements for women in the workplace, there are still some barriers to knock down. Women, and especially women of color, are continually underrepresented at every level from management to executives. While women make up half of corporate America, just 22% are elevated to the C-suite. How do we level out this statistic? One way is by arming one another with support and guidance from like-minded and driven professionals who can help steer our careers in the right direction.
Zipwhip is proud to announce that we’ve joined The Riveter, a coworking and community membership network focused on women and work, to offer a toll-free texting line for women to receive professional development advice from entrepreneurs and executives who are eager to share their tips and experiences.
