WeWork is exploring the sale of its minority stake in the Wing, a female-focused co-working startup, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Wing, both a WeWork competitor as well as one of its investments, is known for its mission of women’s empowerment, member events such as female-led film screenings and discussions with high-profile female leaders including Shonda Rhimes and Hillary Clinton.
