Amy Nelson, founder of female-focused coworking space The Riveter, hopes to take elements of historical legislation, such as the 19th Amendment, and apply it to her company’s initiatives.
“The hurdles that remain in the business world are different for women than they are for men,” said Nelson. “The tactics we’re teaching women aren’t single-gendered—we know this isn’t just a problem for women, but statistics show us [that it will help women more].”
Although female-centric, The Riveter accepts all genders that can help achieve their mission of building up women professionals.
The company hosts events and lectures that help both women and men navigate their careers and provide the tools needed to promote inclusivity within their companies.
Some other guidelines the company has set forward is the 24-hour conflict rule that urges members to resolve conflicts within a day rather than letting it fester and to assume best intentions of colleagues in the sometimes hectic environment.
These are all set to promote an open and transparent culture for both the women and men in the workplace, while devising ways to creating more equal opportunities for members.
