Welcome back to another episode of “The Coworking Values Podcast,” where we dive deep into the world of coworking and flexible workspaces.
In today’s episode, we’re bringing you a special rewind edition, where we revisit a thought-provoking discussion on the importance of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA) in coworking spaces.
Let’s jump right back in as they talked about how traditional office spaces are so narrow and don’t take into account the needs of everyone. They also talked about intersectionality and how people often belong to more than one marginalized group.
They stressed that it’s not enough to just talk about diversity – you need to actually do something about it. They shared some inspiring stories about coworking spaces that have successfully implemented Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA) initiatives, and how it can really make a difference.
They also stressed that it’s important to take small, small steps to make a difference, and not just use it for marketing. They also stressed how important it is to create an office space that everyone can use, no matter their size, shape, or gender.
They also talked about how technology can help make coworking spaces more accessible, both in-person and online, making it more inclusive.
At the end of the episode, they talked about how doing IDEA in coworking spaces is not just a trend, it’s a must. If you want to stay involved in this important conversation, check out coworkingidea.org a platform where people come together to tackle diversity and inclusion issues.
