#WORK has been designed as a space to share resources, new ideas and approaches to creative and entrepreneurial work. The event's panels, workshops and speaker sessions explore personal and professional development, marketing, business management and entrepreneurship.
#bbatx exists to build educated and empowered creative communities at the intersections of sisterhood and space. Through event series, showcases and personal/professional development programs, we amplify and connect women-identifying artists, creatives and entrepreneurs. Since we've been in operation, we've provided a platform of visibility, outreach and financial opportunity to 300+ Texas-based women artists, 400+ women-owned businesses and women activists. We were named "Best Bossy Babes" of 2015 by The Austin Chronicle, Tribeza's Top 10 to Watch in 2016 and we were selected by The White House to attend the United State of Women Summit in June 2016.
Presented by #bossbabesATX, powered by Texas MSTC and produced by women for women in collaboration with Women Who Code: Austin, the inaugural iteration of #WORK was hosted on Jan. 20, 2018 at The Refinery in Austin, Texas.
