At Zipwhip, we strongly believe that workforce diversity leads to stronger products, better financial performance and more connected employees. That's why our first college scholarship is aimed at supporting women in science, technology, engineering and math. We're teaming up with The Riveter, a modern-day union for working women, to help one local female student further her education in a technical field.
The selected student will receive $1,500 from Zipwhip and a six-month Riveter Ally membership, which includes access to all workshops and programs sponsored by The Riveter and other public programs in their spaces, as well as a few floating desk co-working hours per month.
