In order to help foster more women-centric professional networking groups, Bumble has introduced a new feature to the business corner of its app called Women in Bizz. Created “To help women foster the kind of community they report they’re missing at work,” Women in Bizz will allow users to filter their professional networking searches so that they can only search for other women.
By switching on the ‘women-only’ feature, Bumble hopes users will “embrace the opportunity to help foster each others’ development and ask for the time they may not be getting in the work place.”
To coincide with the roll-out of this new feature, bumble will be hosting special Women in Bizz dinners across the US throughout the month of March. These will celebrate women who’ve built successful careers in male-dominated fields, including finance, automotive, and energy.
