On December 12, we’ll host our last community meet-up of 2018, amplifying women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and organizers in Austin, Texas.

On top of our 25+ community announcements (submissions now open), come through to hear three stories of resilience from women leaders living and working in Austin, Texas. 〰️As always, this meet-up will feature a selection of local vendors and opportunities to mingle. It’ll also serve as a moment to recognize and honor #bossbabesATX’s 2018 Babes of the Year (yes!).

All people and professions welcome.


— ON THIS MONTH’S THEME, RESILIENCE —

RESILIENCE (n.): the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.

We are creative risk-takers. Strong and capable decision-makers. Bold and powerful makers. Which means we bounce back. We push forward. And when we fail, we try again.

From our announcements to our speakers, this meet-up will explore our Winter ‘18/’19 programming theme: resilience.


— MEET-UP SCHEDULE OF EVENTS —

Babe Announcements
At every meet, we get 30 attendees on the mic to give a one-minute spiel on the creative, entrepreneurial or cause-related ventures. Whether you're an entrepreneur, a creative, a side hustler or an artist, this announcement space is a chance for you to engage with your community face-to-face. Submit your announcement here.

Our December topic question
This month's topic question is "What makes you resilient?" Anonymous answers will be collected during the meet and later shared on our blog.

— MEET THE PRODUCERS —

About #bossbabesATX: Through event series, showcases and personal/professional development programs, we amplify and connect women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and organizers. Our event series, showcases, strategic collaborations and professional development programs provide a platform of visibility, outreach and financial opportunity to 1000+ emerging women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and organizers per year. On top of that goodness, the public-at-large is invited to participate and learn more about how gender inequality affects their daily lives. More than 10,000+ community members annually attend our showcases, markets and dialogues—and in the last three years, our programs generated an additional $1million for the Austin economy.

This production has been made possible in part by presenting partners Resplendent Hospitality.
