We host and develop a number of programs and productions in Texas and nationwide—from meets to festivals to seminars and dance parties—each focused on activating and mobilizing community.
OUR Productions and programs:
Every other month, we host a meet for self-identifying women to discuss professional and personal development, business, activism and the arts. These meets are town-hall-style, oriented toward networking, with 30 open mic announcements, a lineup of local vendors and a DJ'd dance hour. For more info, please visit our meet page.
Twice yearly, we host a COMMUNITY CAUCUS in Austin, Texas. The caucus serves as a gathering for activists, nonprofits and thought leaders to present issues, share ideas and discuss plans for effective change. Check out our Spring '17 caucus here.
SOCIAL GRRL is our winter and summer meet-up series for marketers. This intimate event provides a platform for attendees to meet other female-identifying marketers, share resources and discuss problems in the advertising and marketing industry.
We put together an annual festival in Austin showcasing self-identifying women and nonbinary folks in music, film, art and comedy. This festival also travels to other cities throughout the year—from NYC to San Antonio to LA.
"SHE TALKS" is a discussion-based personal and professional development series tackling everything from finances to intersectional feminism. Some of our SHE TALKS events directly fundraise for fellow, local nonprofits.
