The turnout at our International Women’s Day social was simply overwhelming. The lounge at Workhaus Commerce Court was bursting at the seams with members from across all three of our locations, to both celebrate and support the women entrepreneurs that inspire them. We learned many things that day- but the most surprising of all – is that our members are rose wine fanatics.
Adrian Joaquin, Workhaus Founder and Managing Partner, shares his thoughts with us on Women’s International Day, “When we first started Workhaus – three years ago – most of our members were men. But now, with more women meet up groups – Lean in Canada, The Big Push, and Women in Tech to name a few – we’ve seen the women membership rates accelerate. It’s been really inspiring to see. Not only has it been inspiring to witness the women memberships grow, but we have learned a lot from the women entrepreneurs within our space. This is why I think it’s so important to support female collectives.”
We also had the pleasure of learning from a few of the many women entrepreneurs that inspire us at Workhaus every day. They shared their expertise with us on everything including characteristics of a successful leader, essential tools to succeed, women that have inspired them, and how to overcome challenges. It was clear to see from the comments on our social media pages that these women don’t just inspire us, they inspire everyone around them.
