This list is in no particular order and we know we missed many movers and shakers. Feel free to tag your female founders below and shout them out as well. We encourage you to follow, support and amplify women in the industry.

Coworking may still be considered a “new” industry but we can testify that it has a disproportionate amount of women leading the charge. We may not be getting the big press or funding but we are making moves, taking names and doing our part to change the world.
