Career Advice Is Just a Text Away!

The disparity between the number of women that enter corporate America and those that are elevated to the management and executive level is stark. Which is why we’ve partnered with our friends at The Riveter to support the next generation of female leaders through a 833-WMN-WORK career advice text line, social media campaign, and live panel event.

Join us for this celebration of the Power of Women at Work, and text in today to hear from a compelling group of entrepreneurs and executives. They will gather at The Riveter in Seattle for Office Hours come Thursday, May 16 to answer your career questions in real-time.

Whether interested in pivoting a career path, starting a business from the ground up or navigating the ins and outs of a current workplace, women and their colleagues across the country are encouraged to text in to receive insights and practical advice from the entrepreneurs and executives that have experienced many of the same challenges and opportunities you are experiencing today and may experience tomorrow.

Office Hours will take place on May 16 from 9-11 a.m. PDT, but the text line is open today. Feel free text your comments, questions and concerns, and if you’re comfortable, share your name and details on where you’re at in your career today. Some of you may receive advice in advance of the Office Hours, otherwise an executive will be sure to text you back on May 16.

WHY 833-WMN-WORK MATTERS

According to the McKinsey Women in the Workplace 2018 report, there’s a lot of progress that needs to be made to achieve equity at work. In corporate America, while entry-level employment is nearly even between men and women, less than one-quarter of women are elevated to the C-suite.

Against this backdrop of such staggering statistics that showcase the barriers and deep disparity women face when building their careers – women now, more than ever, are commanding their place in offices around the world. They are founding more companies, negotiating higher pay and taking control of their careers, all while making sure corporate America recognizes their value.

With 833-WMN-WORK, Zipwhip and The Riveter are working to change these statistics one text at a time to make sure we continue to create progress for women in the workplace.
