Many digital nomads, even complete newbies, join Facebook groups to find answers to their everyday life as a remote worker. These groups provide guidance, advice on how to start out, and new ways and ideas for continuing. They are a place to admit your fears, share your goals, or find someone who can have your back. Some nomads take the next step and attend camps and events.
Some of these spaces—both online and in real life—are exclusively for women. They aim to provide a special place for women to feel supported by other women in their digital nomad or entrepreneurship journey.
Below we’ve highlighted some of these opportunities for women digital nomads to gather and share information.
Digital Nomad Groups for Women
1. Digital Nomad Girls Community
This is a closed group organized by Digital Nomad Girls where you can find not only events for digital nomad women, but also Facebook Live Q&As on topics chosen by members, and inspirational features about amazing digital nomad women.
If you are looking for a supportive community just for girls, request to join their group on Facebook and introduce yourself. You will surely find answers to many of the digital nomad and remote work questions you are asking yourself.
With close to 5000 members, this group of women digital nomads has created community by encouraging their members to answer a set of weekly questions. These questions allow members to talk to each other by sharing information about themselves, such as:
- Goals for the week.
- Current location and suggestions for meetups.
- Struggles and challenges from the week.
- Accomplishments for the week.
- Calls for collaborations.
- Promotion for current projects and businesses.
- Inspiring stories.
- Sharing this information with members creates a space for digital nomad women to feel encouraged by the rest of the members. It’s a great source of inspiration and support.
Women Digital Nomads is a “community to help all nomads, especially women, find the best cities to live and work remotely, learn new skills and be inspired by others.” Women Digital Nomads believe that most digital nomad resources are focused on men (and created by men) so they offer guides with “tips on safety, women co-working spaces and accommodation, and much more to help you stay safe on the road while living the lifestyle of your dreams.”
In addition to their website, Digital Nomad Women have a Facebook page where they share their guides as well as job offers and job search tips. They also answer questions from community members.
Digital Nomad Events for Women
Thanks to the success they had last year, the team at Sun and Co. have collaborated with Digital Nomad Girls to host another retreat for women. Sun and Co. is a coliving space in Javea, a beautiful historic town near the beach south of Valencia, Spain. The retreat runs from September 18 to 27, 2017.
In addition to the great work space at Sun and Co., the retreat will include mastermind sessions, skill shares, welcome BBQ dinner and drinks, farewell paella party with sangria, and much, much more.
