Workbar Sponsored: Workbar’s business model, collaborative environment and use of space has caught the eye of the local IIDA Chapter – The International Interior Design Association. Every couple of months the Forums Committee within IIDA hosts a tour for industry professionals who are interested in seeing recently completed exceptional projects. We have invited members of Allsteel and Analogue Studio, the two houses responsible for our interior design, back to Workbar Cambridge to join our founder, Bill Jacobson, for a panel discussion. The talk will include a design focused tour of Workbar Cambridge, an overview of the project goals and design story, and cocktails / hours devours. This event will be of high interest to interior designers, architects, project managers, facilities departments, manufacturers reps, etc. Please join us in the Cambridge Cafe for the discussion.

Workbar Sponsored: Let it be decided, you shall join us for an evening of verbal battle! Come be part of a great debate where area entrepreneurial and tech communities verbally duke-it-out on timely issues. Why? To hash things out in public, build some awareness, raise some money for good causes and of-course have some fun! Debate #1: SEC regulations should require that, in order to go public or remain publicly-traded, U.S. companies will need to have a majority of women on their boards of directors. Women are today under-represented on corporate boards. (When Twitter went public in 2013, it had zero women on its seven member board.) Yet a majority of the U.S. population are women, and according to the Boston Consulting Group, American women control 73 percent of household spending. Public companies would greatly benefit from having a majority of their board members be women, and the government should pass legislation requiring all public companies achieve that goal.
