The Wing: an exclusive club for co-working women

The demand for co-working offices is set to rocket as the majority of the US workforce are projected to be freelance by 2027. Yet while many such spaces are tech-forward and male-dominated, The Wing is for women only, letting them work, socialize and thrive among fellow female professionals.

Location United States

Scope
Drawing on a tradition of women-only clubs that began in the late 19th century, The Wing was founded in 2017 as a social and co-working space intended to help women develop a community and network. From the pink retro decor to events promoting female power, the proudly feminist locations are positioned between work, activism, and self-care.
