Changing Dating and Networking with Whitney Wolfe

Last year, 28-year old Whitney Wolfe changed the atmosphere in the dating scene. She launched a dating app for women. The app allows women to look for their ideal men instead of waiting for men to initiate. While it was just supposed to be a business idea, the app changed the prevailing culture and created a lot of reaction from people.

This app is not just helping women to find eligible men. It is giving them power and confidence to go for what they want. Traditionally, men start the conversation or attention of the woman. Today, the world is different and women should not be misunderstood if they make their first move.

The success of this app has also encouraged women entrepreneurs. Whitney Wolfe is just a young woman under thirty years but she was not afraid to exploit her potential. Before, Whitney launched Bumble; she worked in an environment that did not satisfy her zeal. It inspired her to quit that job and start her own venture. Today, Whitney Wolfe is glad she followed her desired because they have paid off greatly. Whitney is encouraging other young women to follow suit. They should not be intimidated by the environment.

Recently, Bumble introduced another category for business networking. Bumble Bizz allows professionals to interact and share knowledge or ideas. People are wondering whether it is replacing LinkedIn but they are just competitors. It is good for business people and professionals to have several options to use.

Whitney Wolfe was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. She went to Southern Methodist University. She did a course in social sciences and did community work after college. Whitney even traveled to Southern Asia to work in orphanages. While doing all this work, Whitney probably never knew she would develop interest in technology and business.

Besides work and entrepreneurship, Whitney is a wife to Michael Wolfe. They got married in a color and beautiful wedding in 2017. The achievements of Whitney Wolfe are not just for her fulfillment. They are an inspiration to women. Whitney is a symbol of innovation and doing things differently.

The world may be dominated by men in many areas. However, women need to take up opportunities of changing the playing field. They are entitled to make positive changes in the society. Today it is no longer a big issue when a woman approaches a man. Thanks to Bumble App for changing that stereotypical view that has lasted for many years.

The American Institute of Architects Modernizes Under New Leadership

When you think of architectural design, you may think of the lone architect, an isolated genius hunched over hundreds of sheets of paper, madly scrawling the design for his grand creation. However, in recent days, the perception of architects has begun to change. No longer are they the isolated genius, but rather, they’re masters of leadership, cooperation, and problem-solving.

They work to make the world a better place through architecture, and there’s no organization which understands this better than the American Institute of Architects, an architectural organization spanning over 300 chapters worldwide and dating back to the 19th century. The AIA dedicates itself to the success of its members; cooperation both within and without, and, of course, creativity.

In 2011, the AIA was placed under the leadership of Robert Ivy, renowned architect and talented leader. As the CEO and VP of the AIA, he has helped to drive the organization forward into the modern age and has seen continued success over the past several years.

Robert Ivy Leads the AIA to Growth and Prosperity

After Ivy was elevated to the positions of Chief Executive Officer and Vice President of the American Institute of Architects, his first order of business was to settle into his national office in Washington, DC. He was given a substantial budget, in excess of $50 million, 206 employees, and responsibility for every single one of over 300 chapters. Using these newly granted resources, Ivy set about turning the AIA into a more modern, and more powerful organization. He shifted them from a stagnant and almost outdated group to a modern architectural organization. He put a strong focus on solving environmental and societal problems through architecture and engaging the public in the fields of design and architecture. His efforts paid off, and the AIA has once again become one of the most prestigious architectural organizations in the world.

Before he became their CEO and VP, Ivy was by no means just another architect. He had served on the AIA’s board since the 90s and had been granted the prestigious title of Master Architect, as well as a number of awards. His work is legendary, and he is, arguably, one of the best architects of the 21st century. A strong advocate for architectural publicity and engaging the public, Robert Ivy fit right into the leadership role and worked to design and build a better AIA. Whether he was successful has yet to be determined, but one can be certain that he’s at least on the right track, and that the organization has a very bright future to look forward to under Robert Ivy’s guidance. With more young architects than ever, and a strong focus on cooperation and collaboration with other fields, architecture as a whole looks to have a lot of promise as well.
