The days of heading to a traditional office are becoming more limited as more companies embrace flexible schedules and freelancers thrive in the gig economy.
Where does all this work happen if not in an office cubicle? One option is a coworking space, which is a place where those who do not have a permanent office can come to work individually or in groups.
California Community College faculty are encouraged to attend a daylong workshop that will cover the ins and outs of coworking spaces and how to make valuable connections with entrepreneurs in the community.
The workshop will be held Friday, October 20 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. at Tahoe Mountain Lab, South Lake Tahoe’s first coworking office space for local freelancers, remote workers and entrepreneurs. The event’s goal is to pair start-ups with community colleges to create diverse work experiences for students and curriculum enhancements for faculty.
Cornelius Brown, Deputy Sector Navigator for the Greater Sacramento Region and Jamie Orr, PhD, Founder of Tahoe Mountain Lab will invite participants to discuss how coworking space creates a community of change makers who improve the world with the companies they build, the people they help, and the products they create.
