At Aspire, our commitment to supporting women-owned businesses goes beyond a mission – it’s a core philosophy. When you hire a space here, every beautiful tea you try and every mouth-watering morsel you eat is made by women.
Lunches are served here in our Emmeline Lounge – everything we serve is super fresh, healthy and plant-based and is made by an incredible, women-owned catering company called 9Kitchens. Founded by Chef Kieu-My, 9Kitchens provides jobs to migrant women in London by teaching them how to cook – these amazing women pour their love and healing energy into every dish, just for you. They use the freshest, seasonal ingredients that are healthy for us and the planet to create the most flavourful meals for us. It’s a must try at Aspire.
Our iconic lounge is named after British political activist and key figure in the UK suffragette movement, Emmeline Pankhurst.
Named one of the “100 Most Important People of the 20th Century” by Time, her impact is not to be overlooked.
Her embrace of protest, use of militant tactics and direct action marked a new phase in the battle for women’s votes. Here in our Emmeline loumge, we channel her energy to equip and fortify our Aspire community to take action and create powerful, impactful change.
