We are excited to announce that we’ve proposed a panel discussion at SXSW (South by Southwest) 2007. Simply titled “Boss Lady”, it will cover what makes business different from a female perspective; the particular challenges the panelists have faced; how to create and maintain a business with or without employees; and how to achieve financial success —all without boas or pink markers. Our proposed panelists include:
- Alex Beauchamp, of GirlatPlay.com — which seems to be having some technical issues these days — and A Girl’s Guide to City Life;
- Jenny Hart, Stitching Goddess, author of two books and the popular site Sublime Stitching; and
- Vickie Howell, author of three knitting books, host of the television show, Knitty Gritty, and founder of the Austin Craft Mafia.
We hope you’ll vote for us — you can find our panel filed under “business / funding / entrepreneurial” and “work / career”. (Tip: it’s easier to find in the latter category since there are fewer entries there.)
SXSW is using a voting process to enable attendees (potential and confirmed) to select the panels in which they’re most interested. If you’re thinking of heading to Austin for the big event (even if it’s a long shot… participating in the voting process doesn’t mean you’re expected to attend), we hope you’ll cast a vote in our direction.
Voting closes Friday, October 13.
