Join us for a cutting-edge virtual event to celebrate our Woman’s Way winners and make HUNDREDS of connections for you with female change-makers in Austin!
Austin Woman magazine has been celebrating women for nearly 18 years and Woman's Way Business Awards is an opportunity to recognize, support and promote Austin’s top female leaders. The Woman’s Way awards are Austin’s only business awards for woman-owned and woman-led businesses. Awards are presented in 10 categories, span numerous industries and are chosen by a selection committee of successful, local female business owners and community leaders.
In order to ensure your safety while celebrating these amazing leaders, our Woman's Way Business Awards will be fully virtual this year! Our sister company, On The Dot, has a robust digital, interactive networking and mentorship platform where we'll be bringing you amazing content, fun vendor workshops, virtual networking, an inspiring keynote and the awards ceremony.
So, leave your sweatpants on, grab a cocktail or mocktail and join us for the 5th Annual Woman's Way Business Awards!
A few days before the event, you will receive an invitation to the platform for you to set up your account. On the day of the event, simply log in to your account and all links to the live portions of the event will be on your personalized dashboard. Additionally, you'll be able to check our amazing sponsor pages and vendor marketplace full of custom content created for you, plus, most importantly, connect with other members of the curated networking group you have been assigned. You can begin building connections with any event attendee by simply reviewing their profile and using the built-in messaging system to connect.
The best part is that the networking doesn't end the night of the event! Your membership to the platform is for a full year, giving you plenty of time to get to know everyone on the site and offer up your amazing skills for mentorship, or find the exact advice you need to make the next career move.
