In addition to our work at The University of Texas at Austin, we are two professional leaders committed to advancing others through education and self-improvement. As female executives, we have seen the barriers that have limited the speed and trajectory of women’s career growth.  We co-founded The Texas Women’s Summit as a platform for leveling these obstacles and as a springboard for professional and personal success. 


The content of the summit promises to be timely, fresh, and applicable. We wanted to do more to convene women in leadership and address issues such as, but not limited to, women’s appointments to board directorships, gender pay equity, women in venture capital, and work life balance.
