The Riveter is a co-working space based in Seattle that was created to help inspire and support working women.
The space was created by the former Wall Street lawyer Amy Nelson along with Kim Peltola, who wanted to challenge biases in the professional world that may prevent women from succeeding to the best of their abilities in the workplace. It was created to be a space that female founders and freelancers are able to work and collaborate in, without the interference of sexism and misogyny that is common in many workplaces. The Riveter was designed to offer professional development that is balanced with a focus on wellness – ensuring that women are able to cater to their mental and physical health on top of succeeding professionally.
The Riveter functions as an example of a growing industry that caters to empowering individuals and groups that are not always catered to in mainstream industries.
