The Global Directory of Women-Owned Coworking Spaces


posted on August 9, 2016


The Global Directory of Women-Owned Coworking Spaces, is a current list, yet not an exhaustive one, of woman owned coworking spaces, across the globe. It’s purpose is to bring attention to the women who are gifting us with their leadership and sharing their creative force to create the change they desire to see for themselves and for the other women and men they support.

These women leaders are creating their own spaces, expressing their unique leadership styles and cultivating a community of those who share their vision. 

Despite the many ways that a coworking space can be configured, there is a core belief at the center of this movement, and that belief is that we are stronger, more creative, healthier and more balanced when we work in collaboration with one another. The majority of us, committed to the coworking platform, believe that our future societal challenges will not be resolved through the lens of rugged individualism or dualistic thinking. The path that lies ahead is one that will require women and men working together, dreaming of new possibilities and creating sustainable structures to bring these ideas into being.

If you are a woman, currently launching or operating a coworking space, who is not on this list, please submit your information.
