SXSW - Austin, Texas
Sunday, March 15 at 2pm-3pm | Fairmont Hotel
We're headed to SXSW and pinching ourselves. We won a spot to lead a Meetup session on the topic of women over 40 & 50+ being put on the shelf, tossed aside, and left out to pasture and what we really think about this ageist thinking. If you'd like to join the Austin or bust bandwagon, let us know! We'd love to have a crew of badass women showcasing who we 'really' are today as adventurous, tech-savvy, smart businesswomen on a mission.

Email us if you're headed to Austin at Lupe@bloomcopresents.com.
