Whitney Wolfe Herd has taken over the dating industry with Bumble. With her innovative approach to dating which allows women to initiate, she has managed to connect women with men that are better matched than with other apps. However, she has seen that she does not want to stop at dating with women. As someone who wants to empower women, she has other areas in life that she thinks about for women. One of the most important areas in a woman’s life these days is her career. Therefore, she has developed the business networking extension of Bumble called Bumble Bizz.
One of the reasons that Whitney has developed Bizz is that she understands that sexism is still an issue in the workplace. While more women are working than ever, they are still faced with unequal treatment. Whitney Wolfe Herd has decided to provide a solution for women that will be effective for the short term as well as the long term. She has provided women with a platform that they can use for networking and finding career advancement opportunities. Women are also able to find workplace environments that are more friendly and enriching so that they don’t have to deal with the anxiety of being mistreated.
One of the best things about Bumble Bizz is that it has some of the same features as the dating app. People get to swipe right. The key difference is that while Bumble has people swipe right with dating opportunities, Bumble Bizz will have women swipe right for career opportunities. One thing that can be said for women is that they do have the talent for networking. Also, Bizz makes networking a lot easier for women.
One of the best things that Whitney Wolfe Herd has done for women is give them an advantage over men given that women are more prone to communicating with one another than men are. Therefore, they will be able to connect with one another to find opportunities that connect the most with them. Whitney has shown that men can learn a lot from the examples of women as they advance in their careers.
