We are a group of women, diverse in needs and talents. We all lack a space. A space to focus (without kids and laundry). A space where we feel inspired. A space that is worth leaving home for. A space to have meetings that feels more convenient and professional than a coffee shop. A space that cares about our whole self, not just our work self.
A Place To Find Focus. Balance. Community.
We couldn't find that space, so we decided to build it.
Instead of starting with the question "how many desks can we fit in this space?" we started with the questions "when do you feel the most productive and creative?" "what do you aspire to?" "what would your ideal work space look & feel like? what amenities would it have?" "what do you want to learn?" "what do you want to contribute to the world?"
We held focus groups and design parties. We dreamed big. And we've worked to design every detail to create a space + programming to meet those aspirations.
The world is a tough place. Women and minorities still face daunting obstacles to leadership and investment opportunities. Our men and boys live in a world that doesn't help them navigate toward a full expression of their gender and what it means to "be a man" today. At The Haven, we don't pretend to have the answers, but we pledge this will be a place where we can have tough conversations with diverse people who care about all people living their best life.
The Haven is a reality because a dedicated group of women and men came together to make it happen. It is truly built by the community for the community. We are incredibly grateful for the many people who have donated significant money, resources, expertise and time to bring The Haven to life.
Thank you for joining us and becoming part of Our History.
