This is where a note from Laura and Iris will go.

You are creating places of belonging in your local communities, you are inspiring and supporting your members, and smoothly managing all the daily operations of your coworking space. With all of this purpose-led leadership pouring out into the world, it’s time to reclaim your self-care and renew your energy levels.

See you this summer, you deserve it.

Notes from past attendees

"It's powerful to be in a circle of women who are successful, totally badass, and imperfect and vulnerable. This retreat re-calibrated me in my work and life."
"Honestly I had some what mixed expectations, so the end result was truly amazing! It was great balance between inspiration and hands-on learning. Kudos to the organizers for crafting such a well rounded retreat. And honestly, the impact has already been tremendous - it was just the tonic I needed with regards
to my own journey as a space operator."
"Emotional intelligence and business savvy were both off the charts at this powerful, beautiful, unique retreat. I walked away feeling so fired up to roll up my sleeves and get back to work to help co-create the future of coworking with these amazing women."
"I see the power women can make collectively on this industry and in business.
By creating a space for women, we can then invite others into it
and make them feel empowered and safe."
