Paige Woods

Paige is a co-founder of The Spoons Consultancy Cooperative. Her involvement with the Cooperative began when it was a community for Black millennial women and femmes called the Life of a Single Spoon. As someone always seeking to foster community amongst Black people, Paige co-created the Spoons community to create digital and in-person space for people like her to just be. In a world that is always trying to come for Black women, she wanted to provide space for Black millennial women and femmes to build community, feel connected and learn from each other. All of those learnings have led to the creation of The Spoons Consultancy Cooperative which is a Black woman-led creative consulting cooperative. Her hope is that Spoons can shift the way we think about work and lead to a cooperative economic ecosystem that directly benefits Black people. 

Paige received her Harvard undergraduate degree in Social Studies and African and African American Studies with a focus on Black Community Development. She then received her graduate degree from the University of Oxford in Comparative Social Policy with a focus on mass incarceration and welfare reform.
