There are lots of coworking spaces in Toronto, but Shecosystem is more than shared desks; it’s our work-life space.
We know that women – and their businesses – thrive when they are consciously connected with their bodies, minds, emotions, and with an authentic and supportive community. At Shecosystem you can connect with a supportive sisterhood, professional resources, and a wellness-focussed workplace where you can cultivate your authentic purpose.
Together, we are evolving a feminine paradigm for the working world.
Openness guides our design and the interactions between members and the ecosystem around us. We embrace the unknown and remain receptive to feedback. We keep an open mind and heart, and consider ideas from outside the dominant paradigm. An attitude of openness cultivates compassion and trust.
Collaboration values integration and wholeness over competition and hierarchy: this is how natural systems become abundant and resilient. When we work together to “get to yes” we come up with creative ways to meet everyone’s needs.
Accessibility strives for equitable access to power for all, and success in business is accessible when women can work on their terms. Each of us possesses a wealth of inner resources that we can access when we learn to tune in and value this feminine capital.
Community community provides a sense of belonging and unites us through shared values. Rather than imposing a structure upon a group of people, the community gives rise to a structure that fits its shape. We aim to be a circle, not a pyramid. When we thrive, we reinvest in our communities.
Sustainability includes but goes beyond the ecological dimension. We prevent depletion by nurturing our personal and professional resources and honouring cycles. Maintaining a mindset of abundance means that we can all sustain our businesses: there is enough for all.
Wellness cannot be compromised along the entrepreneurial journey. We support seven dimensions of self care: physical, intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual, financial and environmental. Making time for wellness is not a break from work, it is a part of our business strategy.
Feminism strives to do away with barriers to the full and diverse expression of feminine power. We unite and galvanize to discard old stereotypes, challenge structural inequities that limit our potential, and raise the status of the feminine in the working world.
