Zara Rahim has signed on as communications director for The Wing, a network of co-working and community spaces designed for women.
Rahim was previously communications director at Vogue, serving as a leader for the publication’s diversity initiatives. She left in June as part of an organizational shakeup. Before coming to Vogue, she was a national spokeswoman for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and directed public policy and communications efforts for Uber. She also worked for the office of digital strategy in the Obama administration and was digital content director for Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.
In her new post, Rahim will focus on The Wing’s expansion as well as working on its civic and community engagement. She will also work on the September launch of an app that will allow members of The Wing to connect digitally, as well as at the company’s spaces.
The Wing currently has three locations in New York City and one in Washington D.C. The opening of a San Francisco outpost is scheduled for early October, with an L.A. branch set to open in January 2019. The company has faced criticism, including an investigation by the New York City Human Rights Commission, that its women-only policies constitute discrimination.
