Obama Alum Joins The Wing

Zara Rahim is joining The Wing, a network of co-working and community spaces designed for women, as their first Director of Communications. In her new role, she will focus on The Wing’s expansion and civic and community engagement. She will also spearhead the September launch of the company’s app that will allow members of The Wing to connect digitally, as well as at the company’s physical spaces. Rahim was most recently the Communications Director at Vogue, serving as a leader for the publication’s diversity initiatives. Before that, the trilingual strategist -- who is fluent in English, Bengali, and Spanish -- was the National Spokeswoman for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign. She also previously worked on public policy and communications efforts for Uber. The University of South Florida graduate is an Obama alum, having served as the Florida Digital Content Director for Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. "In a time when it's more important than ever, I was drawn to The Wing’s mission of creating new opportunities, ideas and conversations that will lead to greater mobility and prosperity for women — I'm looking forward to helping them tell their story," Rahim said in a statement. More here.
