DOWNTOWN DEVELOPERS' CONNECTION

We are less than a month away from the Downtown Developers’ Connection. This interactive webinar event will take place on Wednesday, March 24 at 10am. The cost to attend is $20 per person and proceeds will benefit the Downtown Oklahoma City Initiatives nonprofit.

DOKC's goal is to connect local developers, business and civic leaders, elected officials, and design professionals with national experts to discuss tips, trends, and innovations. The presentation will explore how the pandemic has affected employers’ and employees’ views on work flexibility and the purpose of the office, and if that should have long-lasting effects on how we build, manage, and promote our downtown workspaces.

FLORAL HEART PROJECT IN OKC

MASK MANDATE EXTENDED

Oklahoma City Council voted on Tuesday to extend the City’s mask ordinance in indoor public places until April 30, 2021. Public health officials say face coverings are key to slowing the spread of COVID-19. Cases are growing at a slower rate in cities in Oklahoma with mask mandates when compared to cities without them, according to public health data.

We're celebrating the many women who continue to contribute to downtown. By owning businesses and being an empowering force in the community, they inspire women throughout Oklahoma City and beyond. This month in our Local Spotlight, we will specifically feature women-owned businesses and community leaders. We encourage you to show them your support throughout the month of March, and all year round.
THE TREASURY
A NOTE FROM OWNER

 H A N N A H  S C H M I T T 

The Treasury is a coworking space for women located in the Arts District. We may look like a beautiful workspace with top-notch office amenities, but behind the pretty decor is a community of women who are cheering for and challenging each other.
So, in addition to offering conference rooms and beautiful backgrounds for Zoom calls, we host masterminds and events and help provide female-owned businesses more visibility, referrals, and advice from experts to help them grow.

PLENTY Mercantile, the owners are so intentional about every single item they carry. I always know I can find incredible gifts there and that I’m supporting people who care deeply about their staff, the planet and their shoppers. 

 E A T 
I spend way too much time at Kitchen No. 324. I was really mad at them when they took their chorizo gravy off the menu, but I couldn’t stay away. I have had every BLT in the city and theirs is certainly the best. 

 P L A Y 
The Study opened across the street from us last year and that’s been a fun addition to Film Row! I can’t think of a better place to kill an hour (or four). 

 E M P O W E R I N G  W O M E N 
Most people struggle to work from home effectively. We give women the resources and relationships they need to succeed. Female entrepreneurs have long been left to figure things out on their own from their dining table. The Treasury is changing that by providing a legit office space with a built-in support system.
