Designing a more inclusive and equitable coworking future – London Coworking Assembly April Breakfast
For our April London Coworking Assembly Breakfast, we are back at Herman Miller to talk about inclusion, diversity, accessibility and equity.
We often hear some version of “I know this stuff is important, but I don’t know where to begin and never seen to find the time!”
Instead of a lecture, we’ve got Kate, Bertie and Gerald to chat and riff on what is important to you at this moment in time.
Our sessions like this are open conversations where you can ask questions and connect in person with your peers in the London coworking industry.
London is one of the most diverse cities on the planet, and coworking is one of the most inclusive and collaborative industries.
However, many of the underrepresented voices in society are still lacking in the London coworking scene.
They are lacking from the staff and owners of workspaces and in the members and visitors.
Also, follow the monthly Coworking I.D.E.A. Project.
To lead the conversation, you have:
Gerald Vanderpuye – Cofounder Impact Brixton
Along with his start-up founder knowledge, Gerald knows what it is like to build a coworking space in a London neighbourhood.
They have grown Impact Brixton has grown into a vibrant and connected part of the local community in Brixton.
