One of our flagship event series — Coworking + feminist entrepreneurship workshop + networking (+ waffles!)
Join a community of feminist entrepreneurs, creatives, freelancers or people working on a project. All genders welcome!
Since this series started at Teatotaller, where waffles are on the menu, the Leslie-Knope-inspired “Feminists, Waffles, Work” moniker has stuck! Even when we’re at other locations, we always make sure snacks are available closeby!
A 45-minute feminist entrepreneurship workshop exploring sustainable models of work, followed by 3-ish hours of focused Pomodoro-style work/break cycles. In addition to getting work done, you’ll also build your network and benefit from collective brainstorming.
Typical schedule (3.5-hour session)
(The Feminist) Agenda:
- Group intros, work goal-setting, community agreements (15 minutes)
- Workshop: rotating topics (30 minutes)
- 5 Pomodoro Work Cycles (25-min work / 5-min break)
- Session debrief (15 minutes)
Previously covered topics in our coworking sessions include: setting boundaries/expectations at work, integrating inclusive language into our business messaging, making our work accessible to folks with disabilities, considering your body and its needs in your work, decolonizing our hierarchical work structures, thinking about our personal cycles and relationship with time, and much, much more.
Testimonials for #FeministsWafflesWork
After my experience with sharing the gender and age-based struggles I was facing in my career change at a #FeministsWafflesWork session, I committed myself to opening the door for others. I do this through mentoring job-seekers of all ages, gender-identities, and backgrounds.

As always, [#FeministsWafflesWork] was a great combination of guided discussion around a relevant topic along with productive work time and connecting with new people. I always value the connections I make at Feminist Oasis coworking. I would highly recommend the coworking to anyone wanting to dip their toe into the feminist waters. Everyone is very welcoming!

I always value the connections I make at [#FeministsWafflesWork].
I so enjoyed the Feminist Oasis co-working days! I’m more productive (and inspired) than working at home, particularly when work is interspersed with good conversation, exchanges of good ideas about running a business, and the chance to meet new people.
