#BOSSBABESATX COMMUNITY MEET-UP

AUGUST 14, 2019 FROM 6:30 TO 9:30 PM

AT THE NATIVE HOSTEL BALLROOM IN AUSTIN, TEXAS :)

Come through for one of our classic quarterly meet-ups on August 14, 2019!

With a selection of local vendors and opportunities to mingle, the night will begin with three stories on finding your flow state from inspiring thought leaders living and working in Austin, Texas. After our speakers hit the stage, we’ll feature 25+ community announcements from women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and leaders.

All people and professions welcome.


— ON THIS SEASON’S THEME: FLOW —

A flow state, also known as “being in the zone,” is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement and enjoyment.

In life and in business, we know that we’ll face ebbs and flows. It’s natural and normal to go through stages of decline and regrowth, as technology, the market, or our own vision changes. What mindsets do we need to make sense of these cycles?

About #bossbabesATX: We’re a Texas-based nonprofit that amplifies and connects women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and organizers. We create space to share our crafts, catalyze multi-industry coalitions, promote intersectionality across disciplines, seek guidance and provide each other with practical and emotional resources. Anyone interested in our mission, core values, and initiatives are invited to participate—and learn more about how intersectional gender equality can improve their daily lives. We provide 1500 opportunities to women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and community organizers per year. More than 15,000+ community members also annually attend our showcases, markets and dialogues—and in the last three years, our programs generated an additional $1million for the Austin economy. So, whether you apply to participate in one of our programs, attend our workshops, conferences and dialogues, or come out to a festival or market to support the community we’re building, you’re a member of this movement. All babes, all people, are welcome. :) Learn more at bossbabes.org.
