Happy Coworking Day! + The Global Directory of Women Owned Coworking Spaces

Happy Coworking Day to all of us. It鈥檚 hard to believe we are 12 years into this amazing ride. Thank you to everyone, across the world, who are changing lives and communities every day through your work. I have so much love for you.

Also, I wanted to say that Women Who Cowork has launched our website and updated the Global Directory of Women Owned Coworking Spaces. If you are a female founder and haven鈥檛 joined us, please do! We鈥檇 love to list you in our directory, you can fill out this form and we will add you.

Female operators, community managers and founders are all welcome to join our Facebook group, where we鈥檝e got a great community of women sharing ideas and expertise.

And of course, we love our male founders, operators and community managers too! We invite you to like our FB page and follow our progress there.

Love to all!

Iris

This is great.

As I鈥檓 building the community for our space in small town Hinesburg, VT I鈥檓 noticing that fully 70% of our facebook fans are local women. That might be related to the use of facebook overall, and I think there鈥檚 more there. It鈥檚 great.

So, I鈥檓 noodling on having a future Pop-up Coworking Day that鈥檚 Women Only, maybe in October Here鈥檚 what were doing in 2 weeks http://vermontcoworking.eventbrite.com

What do you think? How might I approach this? Is this a good idea?

Congrats Iris!!! This is so great!!

Hi Wayne! Perhaps you can reach out to your Facebook followers to see if someone would be willing to help take the lead in developing a program specifically geared towards women?

It might be a nice opportunity for you to draw out potential leaders in your community, so you鈥檙e not doing it yourself!

Hi Iris, I鈥檓 interested in your Facebook group! Both of the FB links you listed point to the FB page, though. Is there another link for the group?

Hi Jen-

I think FB won鈥檛 let me link the group, since it鈥檚 private. You can access the group via the FB page, look on the left nav and click on groups. Alternatively, search for the group or friend me on FB and I鈥檒l add you!

Excited to have you join us.

Generally, I would say that a women only event should be lead and organized by a woman. If it鈥檚 not, it鈥檒l be off-putting :slight_smile:

Hi-

I think it鈥檚 great that you have noticed the number of women who are interested in Coworking in your community, and I really like that you want to offer something to the women which will meet them where their needs are. What you鈥檙e doing with your back to school pop-up looks fun!

I agree with Tony and Angel that the effort to create such an offering would be best led by a woman of the community. I recommend reaching out to your biggest engagers who are women and offer this idea, with an ask for someone to lead the effort. When the woman/women step up to lead, you can then provide the infrastructure and support needed to make things happen, and the manpower to execute on their plans.

Best of luck! Would love to hear how it goes.

Hello all;

TY for your great feedback. That's exactly what I was hoping to learn and it makes complete sense, minus the use of the word "manpower". Ha! :slight_smile:

Totally agree that I need help pulling this off.

Kindly,
Wayne
