A NEW WAY TO WORK
Why The Wave?
Women thrive in environments where they are surrounded by other driven and accomplished women, and those spaces are rare in Utah. So, we built on. The Wave is a coworking space and social club in downtown Salt Lake City built to create an empowering space for women in Utah. The Wave is a space to build both your business and community.
Whether you’re a freelancer, independent contractor, business owner, or just wanting to spend a few hours working in a space outside your home or usual coffee shop, co-working spaces and social clubs have become an increasingly popular option.
The Wave took the coworking and social club model and elevated it to meet the needs of Utah women. We’re creating a community of collaboration by offering a space for networking and meeting other women in Utah that share similar passions and visions.
Our 17,000 square foot space provides everything you need to thrive in your personal and professional life. Coworking is our speciality, but we offer so much more. The Wave offers on-site childcare, an art space, podcast room, beauty bar, private event rental, private office and desk rental options, and more. Schedule a tour and see what we're all about.
in women's spaces.
In 2018, a study by LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Company found that women remain underrepresented in the workplace, receive less support from company leaders, and sexual harassment remains a prevalent problem. Women are asking for more, but are left behind when it comes to promotions and higher pay. You can read the details of the study here.
Despite these statistics, there are solutions and steps companies can take to make progress. Women succeed in environments that foster inclusion, offer flexibility, refrain from tokenizing, and ensure fair practices in hiring. Women’s spaces create these environments. The success and advancement of women is only realized when work environments take diversity and inclusion seriously. Enter the women’s coworking space. Learn more about our plan options here.

Our building once housed the Commercial Club, a business club for men in Salt Lake City. When it was first built in 1909, women weren't allowed in the building, except for limited spaces such as the Ladie's Parlor on the first floor and the women's dining room on the third floor.
