One of the most important aspects of being a successful remote worker is of course—your work space. Being a remote entrepreneur comes with lots of freedom and flexibility, and what better way to utilize that than to have a space that provides you with a community of fellow-entrepreneurs. Coworking spaces are designed for the ultimate entrepreneur looking for an atmosphere that is full of productivity.
The Riveter is a female-founded, Seattle-based company, that’s brought its seventh location to Dallas, TX this year. Sure there are a few coworking spaces currently in Dallas, however we’re going to tell you why The Riveter is the best one yet for entrepreneurs in Dallas.
The Riveter is a modern day union for working women, providing community, content, resources, and coworking spaces, built by women for everyone.. The company is based on the ideology that, “equity of opportunity should be a reality, not a promise,” which can be seen throughout their community based co-working space.
Reason #1: “Built by Women for Everyone”
The Riveter is Dallas’ first female-founded co-working space in the heart of the Oak Lawn neighborhood. Its mission is to simply change the future of the workplace for all women. Being able to invite tough conversations into the workplace without feeling uncomfortable to discuss them is what The Riveter represents. Although this co-working space was designed by women, it’s not limited to just women utilizing it hence—“built by women, for everyone.”
Reason #2: Incorporation of Diversity, Equity + Inclusion Programs
Staff at The Riveter are big on inclusivity. Because of this, the company has ensured that its principles are founded on diversity, equity, and inclusion. These programs include the incorporation of leadership and management in the workplace, mentorship and sponsorship, tools deemed necessary to close the gender pay gap, and building a sense of community for women underrepresented in their career fields.
