If you listen to our podcast, you’ve heard us talking about the new LinkedIn-Like platform created for women by women. Girlboss is a popular community created by Nasty Gal founder, Sophia Amoruso.
Throughout the last couple of years, the brand has been on a constant mission to bring new things to the community. With the creation of the professional network, their team hopes it will help connect female entrepreneurs, creatives, and freelancers with other like-minded women. Here are some ways that the Girlboss professional network works and is revolutionizing social media for ambitious women.
Prominent Female Leaders Will Host “Ask Me Anything” Sessions
Notable women such as Arianna Huffington, Beth Comstock, and Bozoma St. John are just a few examples of big names that will lead Q&A sessions. All members on the Girlboss platform will be able to interact and leave questions for the session host.
Professionalism & Sense of Self Are Elegantly Combined
Don’t you just hate those stuffy uptight vibes you get from other networking platforms? Girlbossmembers will be able to customize their profiles to not just share what they do but also capture who they are in order to bring in the important element of personality. There’s also a fun fill-in-the-blank bio and horoscope reading to create a more casual feel.
There’s a Heavy Emphasis on Meaningful Connections
In order to ensure every connection request is meaningful, members can only send one connection request daily. This encourages people to clearly state their intentions as well as truly reflect on who they want to surround themselves with as they nurture new relationships.
Membership Is Free To Ensure Accessibility
Usually, it’s women who can’t afford to join members-only clubs. So in order to make sure that career-minded women everywhere can access opportunities, the platform is free to join in an effort to truly carve out community.
Having the opportunity to show up on another platform is amazing and the fact that it’s all women makes it even better to fully embrace #WomenSupportingWomen and #CommunityOverCompetition. We love seeing like-minded women come together and help one another step into their power!
