“But we can’t stop there,” she noted. “So we’re redoubling our focus on the pursuit of equity, which will be my highest priority and our team’s principle focus in the coming months and years. There are already 25 features in WELL that address diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility and justice and we are standing up a Health Equity Advisory in early December to help us further fortify WELL as a lever for health equity to afford everyone an opportunity to live the healthiest version of their lives.”

“Continuing to work alongside Rachel in this new role as COO for IWBI is a privilege, and one I’m excited to embrace,” said Khanna. “Over the past four years, we’ve worked hard to simplify and streamline our products and our processes to make a rich customer experience one of our hallmarks. Our deep bench of extraordinary talent across every part of the business has made possible much of our success to date as has our nimble approach to execution that allows us to function with the agility the moment demands.”

IWBI now enrolls more than one million square feet per day, accounting for more than a billion square feet in total across the 65 countries. WELL Accredited Professionals and those pursuing the credential number more than 14,000 in 97 countries.
