Eaton Workshop is a purpose-driven global hospitality company dedicated to shaping a better world based on values of inclusivity, integrity, and imagination and driven by a triple bottom line of people, planet, and profit. Founded by Hong Kong-born Asian-American Katherine Lo in 2018, she started Eaton to reimagine how we could build physical and digital spaces as platforms for creativity and collective change with an eye towards a more fair world. Eaton Workshop's physical and digital spaces are a place for kindred spirits to commune, collaborate, and make an impact. Our properties, Eaton DC in Washington DC and Eaton HK in Hong Kong, champion our brand pillars: Impact (social and environmental impact), Culture (the arts, literature, theater, music), Media (radio, film), Wellness (holistic mind-body-spirit healing), and House (purpose-driven members workspace), as well as beautifully designed, ethical hotel and F&B offerings.

We are looking for people who embody integrity, compassion, humility, an open mind, and a collaborative spirit.
