ABOUT JO CHILD
Founder of Co-Women
Event Director and Coach
Hi, I'm Jo!
I'm an advocate for underdogs, a champion for misfits and a self confessed kindness junkie. I want all women to utilise their individual uniqueness to drive themselves forwards in their lives and in their businesses. I'm not one to shy away from tough topics and I'm outspoken about mental health and neurodiversity. I openly welcome women of all working backgrounds and actively work hard to provide a protective and inclusive environment for women who work in the adult industry, supporting the cause "sex work is work" I created Co-Women because I see the need to keep pushing positive feminism for societal change. I'm genuinely passionate about smashing down walls between women, uniting them, eviscerating stigma and judgement, building confidence, and creating a special community.
I'm also an Ask Me Ambassador for the domestic abuse charity RISE, and host events in the city to raise funds and awareness.
ALL women belong here, I'm learning along the way and educating myself by getting out there and speaking to women of all backgrounds to make sure that this community is representative of everything that we stand for including trans rights, ethnic equality, neurodiversity inclusion, and menstrual health awareness. Co-Women is more than social events and networking platform. We're a political movement, striving to make this world a better place for all women.
At Co-Women we believe in equality for everybody regardless of background, age, gender, sexuality, difference in ability, quirks and fetishes.
We exist to make entrepreneurship a viable option for everybody.
However, there are still many challenges ahead to create a fair professional environment for men and women alike. We’re here to give women a leg up. So we can collectively make a contribution to closing the gender pay gap, end discrimination and empower female voices in a male dominated world.
Built by women for women, we exist to support female entrepreneurs and business owners to grow with purpose and integrity.
Co-Women is an ethics led business - not just because we are demonstrably reducing our carbon footprint but because we have a human first approach to everything we do. We prioritise well-being over profit and sanity over status.
We run events to motivate and inspire.
Our membership programme offers a chance to collaborate and skill-share as well as access discounts from local businesses.
Fundamentally, were here to support your success however you chose to define it.
