The way we work is changing, and now Atlanta has its first women-only coworking space. Eleanor's Place in Buckhead isn't the first of its kind nationally, as states across the U.S. have such spaces. And there are other "female-focused" co-working spaces like Hera Hub in Atlanta, but Eleanor's Place is the first to be exclusively for women.

Eleanor’s Place is designed to foster Atlanta’s own community of women to continue carrying the torch as they lift each other up in their own way, according to their website. The space is uniquely designed for women, and members have access to its meeting spaces to hold educational evenings, social events and private functions.

Named after former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Eleanor’s Place officially opened in September, and it features a reception area, living room, kitchen, coworking area, private booth offices and a conference room.

“I continued to hear women, both professionals and stay-at-home mothers of busy families, share that they were seeking a sanctuary to work, brainstorm, network and recharge,” said Jennifer Morgan, creator and founder of Eleanor’s Place. “My vision is for Eleanor’s Place to empower women — whether they are setting big goals and achieving the unthinkable or checking details off their to-do list — through a space that will welcome and inspire.”
