The Riveter: How Prejudiced Are You? Recognizing and Combating Unconscious Bias
September 9, 2020
Overt racism is easy to identify. But what about implicit bias – soft prejudices that we all have, but of which we are basically unaware. In today’s heated social and global climate, this lack of awareness can deeply impact your professional and personal life as well as the way you unintentionally communicate and think. It can even have serious economic ramifications, particularly for women, as well as for corporations.
This thought-provoking workshop will take a deep dive into the subject, where you will confront your own biases and see how you – regardless of race, status, income or education –- have been a victim of unconscious bias. There will be an exercise that underscores and furthers the learnings.Learn more

Austin Startup Week
October 5-9, 2020
Started in 2011, Austin Startup Week is five days of events celebrating Austin startups, the organizations and meetups that support them and all the awesome people that make them happen!
Each year, organizations and startups open their doors, put on events and roll out the red carpet for both locals and visitors who are interested in learning more about the startup scene in Austin.
We’re excited to share that the 10th annual Austin Startup Week is going virtual from October 5-9, 2020. Over the last few months, we have been inspired to see the Austin community come together to offer support, collaboration, and resources to one another. As we adjust and adapt to the new reality, it’s urgent that we continue to focus on supporting each other, removing barriers, facilitating connections, sharing resources and finding a way through this as a community. We hope you’ll join us October 5-9, 2020 for a week of engaging sessions, workshops, special events, and amazing speakers, all on a virtual stage.Learn more
