    Abstract

    In the last decade, coworking and coworking spaces have become a truly global trend and are now also a feature of Africa’s major cities. However, coworking needs to be better understood in the context of developing countries and contextualised by the cultural and socio-economic dynamics of each location. In this chapter, we consider the way coworking interacts with different politics of gender and how it is not always an inclusive practice. Using a case study of Tribe XX Lab, a female-focused coworking space in Lagos, Nigeria, the chapter both addresses the gap in understanding of gender-based experiences of coworking and presents how the coworking model can be tailored to help address the challenges faced by female entrepreneurs and support women’s empowerment in Nigeria
