"Diversity Is Being Invited To The Party; Inclusion is Being Asked To Dance"
This is the next event in the ongoing collaboration of The European Coworking Assembly and Ouishare UK to activate conversations around the coworking values.
GCUC UK is partnering with the European Coworking Assembly and Ouishare UK for an upcoming event titled Inclusion, Diversity & Accessibility in Collaborative Workspaces.
Focused on the benefits and challenges of creating inclusive and diverse workspaces that are accessible to all, the event is the latest in a series designed to activate conversations around the core values of coworking.
This event takes place June 18 at Huckletree West in London.
As coworking continues to redefine the future of work, the workspace industry faces pressing issues around inclusion. How do we better diversify collaborative workspaces?
As Jeannine van der Linden from European Coworking Assembly explains:
“We cannot be satisfied with accepting what we already have and then adjusting that. To create the future we need to hear from and support the folks most affected, people who are curious, open, accessible, collaborative, and ambitious to create the new environment of work if we want an environment that embraces all of us for the good of all of us.”
The event will feature a panel discussion between event chair Jeannine van der Linden and the following panellists:
Claire Carpenter - Coworking Accelerator Network / The Melting Pot (Edinburgh)
Ed Goodman - Cambridge Business Lounge/Freelancer Heroes
Eric Ace - Founder - The Studio - Camden
Polly Robbins - Co-Tech and Space4
Event attendees are invited to bring stories, questions, ideas, thoughts and insights around diversity and inclusion to share.
