Zipwhip partners with The Riveter to support strong women in business.

INTERNET BUSINESS NEWS-(C)1995-2019 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

Zipwhip, the provider of texting for business, and The Riveter, a national membership network on a mission to elevate women in their work, has announced the launch of a career advice text line and #WMNWORK campaign designed to celebrate women in the workplace, the company said.

Women and their supporters of all genders are encouraged to text 1-833-WMN-WORK (1-833-966-9675) with questions on how to expand, elevate and evolve their careers. Come Thursday, May 16, a compelling group of entrepreneurs and executives will gather at The Riveter in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood for Office Hours from 9-11 a.m. PDT to respond and engage with participants in real-time via text message.

According to the McKinsey Women in the Workplace 2018 report, women hold nearly half of entry-level positions in corporate America. Despite this, women make up less than 30 percent of Vice President-level positions and just 22 percent of C-suite executives. Against this backdrop of such staggering statistics that showcase the barriers and deep disparity women face when building their careers -- women more than ever are commanding their place in offices around the world.

The #WMNWORK campaign partnership also includes a first-of-its-kind program for Zipwhip employees, which enables Zipwhip team members to access The Riveter's shared coworking spaces, networking events and a unique on-site learning and development program.

Zipwhip empowers companies to communicate with their customers with text messaging. As the pioneer of texting for business, Zipwhip first enabled text messaging to and from existing landline, VoIP and toll-free phone numbers in 2014. Zipwhip's direct network connectivity, intuitive cloud-based software and an enterprise-grade API mean businesses can use any computer or mobile device to securely and reliably reach their customers, every time.

The Riveter is a network of community and coworking spaces built by women, for everyone. The Riveter offers innovative spaces, learning and development programming that spans industries and career stages, and flexible membership plans. Launched in May 2017 in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood, The Riveter has grown to include seven locations in Seattle, WA, Los Angeles, CA, Austin and Dallas, TX with many more locations planned for 2019 and beyond.
