The Women’s Plaza is a community that offers families, women and children theopportunity to be nurtured, fulfilled, connected and empowered on a daily basis. This powerful organization is working to create an inspirational and functional workspace where mothers and children can thrive!

To prevent women from having to choose between motherhood and a successful career, The Women’s Plaza plans to provide a space with these four main components:

  • Co-working and shared office space for women entrepreneurs, remote employees, and independent contractors that require office space and business amenities with flexible hours.
  • High quality childcare center on premises through its partner Creative Minds Learning Centers
  • Kitchen and communal eating area that offers fresh organic meals and packaged meals for take-away.
  • Access to development programs that target physical, emotional and professional growth.

Join the Women’s Plaza community and give five minutes of your time to share your feedback and start making the Plaza yours!

A word from the founder Glaucia Martin-Porath:

“Every woman that I encounter inspires me; warriors of the daily routines, the daily struggles, who conquer social isolation and prejudice everyday with a gentle heart. Women who put their children and family’s needs first no matter what, and many times renounce their own well being and balance in the process. Women who keep going and keep fighting and keep doing the best they can in every area of their lives without giving up. For these women: mothers who want to be with their newborn babies, professionals who have a career to build, women who must nurture their heart, body and soul, and women who have a family to raise and relationships to deepen.  For these women, I developed the Women’s Plaza.”
