Gender inequality in investing, and finance in general, continues to plague corporate America. Ellevest, breaks the mold by adding value to women by providing investment consulting. On West 25th Street in New York City, the start-up company designed its offices with the help of Homepolish.
Workstations, collaboration spaces, and reception area were amped up to reflect feminine character. By use of abstract art and colorful accessories, the office came together. The open-floor plan workstations were built into the floor, but accessories made all the difference. Comfortable grey chairs, turquoise and magenta lounge seating, and no window coverings make the office a think-tank. Even the kitchen, with tall bar stools from West Elm, is a collaborative meeting space.
