#Bossbabesatx First Coffee Meet says
We're just a couple of babes who noticed women sometimes avoid collaborating artistically/creatively/professionally with other women. This cultural training has shaped women to behave in a couple of ways:

We avoid openly discussing business with each other, because we feel that success among women is finite.
We have been taught that other women's achievements are threatening, and we internalize our weaknesses and challenges.
We sometimes feel isolated professionally, because we don't see as many women in the workplace or talk to women about the things we face as women in the workplace.
We refuse to accept that these behaviors are just "a woman's way."

Time for a paradigm shift. Meet your new favorite group of radicals.

Through coffee meets, creative retreats and a bustling online database of badass females, we hope to turn Austin into the kind of city a woman can call home — a-take-off-her-bra-let-down-her-hair-brew-some-coffee-invite-the-crew-spin-a-vinyl-and-throw-herself-into-work kind of home.

Our first meet will be on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at Friends & Neighbors in East Austin. It's BYOB (bring your own babes).

Our vendors/activities are:

— Crafts & Arts Clothing
— Vagina:: The Zine — http://www.thevaginazine.com/
— Emma Schmidt's Maps — http://www.emmacschmidt.com/
— #bossbabesatx Photobooth
— #bossbabesatx Life Lessons board (you'll get it when you see it)

We will have sign-up sheets for:
— A dope-ass #LoveYourLines video shoot (info to come; get excited)
— Future vendors for events
— Vendors for bossbabes.org (yeah, this is really going to happen; we're kind of freaking out)
— @bossbabesatx Instagram takeovers
— Email List

We will have donation bowls for:
— Ideas (suggestions, commentary, etc.)
— Locations (space, space, space, give us all the space!)
— Cold, hard cash (we're currently self-funded and appreciate all of the support we can get!)

Make sure you show up by 7:15 p.m. Our founder, J, is going to give a little speech/cue us all in as to why #bossbabesatx is happening and where it's going.

There will also be a couple of surprises. WE SERIOUSLY CANNOT WAIT TO MEET YOU.
