A Step-by-Step Guide to Making your Coworking Space Accessible
London Coworking Assembly is the online place for people who run a London Coworking Community. Each month, members gather online for half an hour to take the IDEA Challenge collectively. This event is in English.
How to make your space more inclusive, diverse, equitable and accessible to those who make use of them is widely discussed in the coworking community.
As stated by DeskMag; ‘Accessibility is, of course, the geographical proximity of the space to the coworker’s dwelling, but ‘accessibility’ goes far beyond this. The general rule is that, the easier it is to enter and exit the space, the more ‘accessible’ that space is.’
Membership fees vs. paying by the hour, operating hours and furniture can all go a long way towards making your space more open, welcoming and accommodating of the members you’d like to attract.
This month, as part of the Coworking I.D.E.A Project, Ivanne Poussier, #FutureOfWork expert, CEO and Co-founder at Ada Coworking, along with David O’Coimin inclusion specialist and Creative Director at Nook Pod, offers a step-by-step guide to making your coworking space accessible.
