#bossbabesATX Tour Recap!
Over the last few weeks, we've traveled around the country hosting events, sitting on panels and attending the United State of Women Summit in Washington, DC!
First up, on June 9, we hosted a panel for BABES FEST in Soho, NYC with nine of our favorites in creative industry.
Then our founder Jane Claire Hervey sat on a panel with Tom Tom Mag on June 12 in Bushwick (Brooklyn, NY) to discuss accessibility in music. We heard from 10 people in the music/creative industry about both their personal experiences and broad observations on topics affecting accessibility—from gender bias to affordability to consumer expectations.
And last but not least, Jane attended the United State of Women Summit in Washington, DC. She heard so many incredible women and feminist allies speak on the importance of addressing gender disparities. VP Joe Biden gave a speech on eradicating domestic violence and sexual assault, President Obama spoke to the power of changing culture—why gender expectations and roles hurt both girls and boys, Michelle Obama and Oprah discussed the value of confidence, self-love and ultimately transparency about what you want in life and from yourself. Austin's own 11-year-old entrepreneur prodigy, Mikaila of Me + the Bees Lemonade, even introduced the President for his address! More on the summit to come, but in the mean time:
