About the producers, bbatx (#bossbabesATX): We amplify women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and leaders in Texas. At bbatx, we believe that representation, education and intersectionality make for more resilient leaders and communities. So, through conferences, markets, festivals and meet-ups, we create spaces to share our crafts, find collaborators, learn new skills, seek guidance and provide each other with practical and emotional resources. Our programs showcase, educate and connect 1500+ emerging women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and leaders per year. Beyond the opportunities we offer, our exhibitions and events are attended by 20,000+ community members per year (including you!). Learn more and get involved at bossbabes.org.

BBATX’S VIRTUAL PROGRAMMING has been made possible by our year-round partners at bbatx. Without them, we’d be shuttering our doors. Thank you for supporting us.
