Women of Email™ Reaches Membership Milestone
Email Industry’s First Association for Women Tops 1,500 Members on International Women’s Day
Edgewater, NJ — Women of Email™ is thrilled to announce it has exceeded 1,500 members. The association for women in the email industry achieved this membership milestone on a noteworthy day: March 8, 2018 — International Women’s Day.
Established on June 3, 2016, Women of Email is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that enables women in the email marketing niche to advance their careers through mentorship, speaking engagements, and peer support. Founded by Jen Capstraw, Kristin Bond, April Mullen, and Laura Atkins, Women of Email boasts 1,500+ members in 32 countries across six continents.
“What a way to celebrate International Women’s Day!” said Jen Capstraw, President of Women of Email. “We are so proud of our tremendous growth and impact on the email community in such a short period of time.”
Best-known for its highly engaged online community, Women of Email’s speakers bureau, mentoring program, and meetups have been integral in giving industry women greater visibility and supporting the advancement of members’ careers.
"We've discovered repeatedly that prior to Women of Email, many of our members felt isolated while facing common challenges that affect working women everywhere and, more specifically, in the email marketing niche. We've given them a community to get the advice, mentorship, and confidence needed to accelerate their careers,” said Women of Email Treasurer, April Mullen. "Through positive reinforcement of our members, many have gone on to overcome their fear of public speaking, writing or asking for a much-deserved raise. We're directly addressing the key barriers that have held women back and we're watching members blossom before our eyes, which has been incredibly gratifying."
Several members of the WoE speakers bureau will be featured at the upcoming EiQ conference on April 19, 2018 in Atlanta, GA, including the “Email Therapy” panel curated and moderated by the association.
