Power of the Pack: Women Rising + DWEN Austin Chapter Launch Event

Friday | March 13 | 1:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Women are shattering glass ceilings and stereotypes more than ever, making their mark as entrepreneurs, founding successful businesses, and rising in the ranks of leadership, but there is still work to be done to overcome challenges and level the playing field. Join us for two engaging discussions with trailblazing, inspirational women as we explore how the landscape for women in business is evolving and how to continue to rise in your professional journey.   

The two conversations will be followed by a networking cocktail reception to celebrate the official launch of the Austin chapter of the Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network (DWEN) at South by Southwest. For more than a decade, DWEN has brought women entrepreneurs together from around the world in an effort to help them connect with each other, scale their businesses, and ultimately succeed.  Austin is the hometown of Dell Technologies, and we are excited to launch a chapter of DWEN here dedicated to women-owned businesses in Central Texas.
