We miss engaging our participants in person – and face-to-face is still difficult. We recognize the benefit of being online is that we can bring valuable information to more womxn, in more places. This format also allows us to curate a collaborative network and build a greater offering of topics. Hosted by diverse, sharp, and relatable entrepreneurs and women in trades, the workshops are each in some way connected to helping people create safe and comfortable sanctuaries.
Workshops are typically 3-4 hours. Webinar sessions last 30 minutes to 2 hours and registrants are emailed replica replays so you never have to worry about adjusting your schedule.
New topics are added monthly.
Our workshop hosts come with some serious industry credentials in organizing, occupational therapy, finance, home inspection, renovation, and tiny houses. We bring the professional experience and also have our own “home” stories to tell.
Founder of HardHat Diplomat, Erin is a home renovation coach, certified national home inspector, and strategy consultant. She serves as moderator and presenter for most sessions and curates the Workshops for Womxn marketplace.
Lee is a tiny house advocate and founder of Kotierra. She consults with cities and individuals exploring how to incorporate tiny houses into their communities. Lee and Erin built out a van for a national tour and have taught 30 in person workshops together in 10 cities.
Jewel is a national tiny house consultant. She is the creator of Ms Bohemian Soul Tiny House and founder of Tiny House Trailblazers, a collaboration of Black women within the tiny house movement.
If women purchase homes at twice the rate of men, why are we so hesitant to take on home improvement?
