What We See
Female leadership seems to be on the rise and we have seen it in the amount of women starting business at our spaces as well. The glass ceiling seems to be lifting as we begin to accept the fairer sex as a powerful contributor to finance, innovation, and enterprise.
The shift is also creating a balance in the business place, this trend doesn’t mean getting rid of the male perspective. We are hopeful that this is the start of the sexes learning to collaborate more effectively. After all ideas need the support from diverse collaboration.
According to anthropologist Helen Fisher, this trend is actually quit primitive, she believes that we are actually going back to our roots.

Testosterone lead in the linear and calculating task of hunting, this is the reason males are much better at linear thought, systems, spacial awareness, and making high risk decisions. In contrast estrogen had to manage crops, children, the kill, therefore females now carry traits of management , multi focusing, observation, and circular thinking.
