Coworking 101: Benefits of Female-Focused Coworking Spaces

SheSpace offers all the benefits of coworking, but with a female focus in a beautiful new 6,000 square-foot location near Downtown Houston.

As the number of independent workers (contractors, freelancers and entrepreneurs) has increased, so have coworking spaces. They’re also used by “traditional” employees of companies who work remotely from their company’s offices. As more coworking spaces are needed, people are recognizing the importance of female-focused co-working. Benefits are many and significant.

It’s a place where people can come to work independently or in groups.

What do coworking environments offer?

They typically have shared areas where people can grab an empty chair or table and get to work. They also generally have private office spaces where people can meet with clients, or just close the door and make phone calls or work without distractions. Most have conference rooms for meetings.

There are coworking space benefits for startups. If you’re still in the planning stages of a new business or your offices aren’t ready yet, coworking spaces can provide a place to meet and plan with your team.

What Do Female-Focused Coworking Spaces Offer?

Many coworking spaces have become “boys clubs.” The design is often functional, but not attractive. Amenities may include pool tables and a selection of craft beers, but not areas for new moms to pump milk. Some women find themselves getting hit on by the guy sitting next to them when all they want to do is finish writing a grant proposal.

SheSpace is a coworking space designed for women by women. Besides the aesthetics — a bright, beautiful, 6,000 square-foot space — we offer a wide range of amenities that working women — including moms — need, like FLSA-approved lactating areas and exercise classes.

More importantly, as Houston’s first female-focused coworking space, we offer programs and events designed to help women support and inspire each other. These include:

  • Female-centric conferences and events
  • Mentorship programs
  • Ongoing educational opportunities
