BROOKLYN, N.Y--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zipari, the first and only consumer experience platform built specifically for the health insurance industry, has been named to the Parity.org Best Companies for Women to Advance List 2020.

Companies on the list were rated in areas of recruitment, benefits, executive preparation, measurement, and representation. These companies have made a significant commitment to the advancement of women.
“In the early days of Zipari, our leadership team made a pledge to take ownership of company culture and committed to fostering an environment where all could succeed. This meant offering equal opportunities to every team member, ensuring benefits accommodated all needs, and remaining devoted to equal representation in decision making. Six years later, I’m proud to say we’ve lived up to this commitment,” said Mark Nathan, CEO and Founder of Zipari. “We also realize our role in offering an equal playing field for women is never finished, which is why we are focused on evolving with the times to ensure everyone at Zipari has an equal opportunity for success.”

We hope that more companies will follow their lead and take similar actions to pave the way for the women in their organization to advance.”
