Conquering SXSW (welcome, New York Times readers!)
Every year at SXSW, we host a great event for women in tech and new media to celebrate and highlight their accomplishments, introduce them to each other and present a visible, physical reminder that the industry is not comprised solely of white dudes in hoodies.
Last year we were delighted to be sponsored in part by Posse, a great app for seeing what your friends recommend in a town (Microsoft was our other sponsor). Posse founder Rebekah Cambpell wrote a terrific article for the NYT about how her team made a huge splash at SXSW without a huge marketing budget - including sponsoring our event! She wrote that she was delighted to be able to give a speech. That’s her above giving it.
If you’re coming here from that article, welcome! Last year’s party was the official SXSW launch of TheLi.st, a network and media platform for women and sister-org to CTR. We have an expanding membership network, a newsletter, and most recently, an anthology out on Amazon Kindle called “The 10 Habits of Highly Successful Women.”
