April shower bring May flowers but March brings the C&C team to Texas. That’s right! For the third year in a row, we’re heading to Texas to get interactive with y'all.

With the bomb C&C panels you’ve come to love and expect and Keynote Gina Rodriguez, we’re bringing the heat. (Austin is bringing the BBQ.)


The Refinery, the kick ass female co-working space!

612 Brazos St, Austin, TX 78701

Parking & What to Bring:

Austin weather can be a bit unpredictable in Spring, so bring a sweater. While the event will take indoors you don’t want to get caught unprepared!

Oh, also, bring along you ID. (There will be champagne and Crown Royal cocktails for those 21+.)

While there is parking by the venue, we *highly* recommendation using a ride-share company. Uber works in Austin, as well as local ride-share companies like Ride Austin, which s a nonprofit that pays its drivers the highest percentage among ride-share options. Just sayin’.

Arrivals - Here’s what you can expect:

Line up early!! Seriously. While we won’t be letting anyone into the space until 10:30 AM, the first 150 attendees will get gift bags full of goodies as soon as they walk-in. So again, line up early! We’ll be providing drinks from Chameleon Cold Brew, Health-Ade kombucha and RXbars for you to snack on while you wait in line! Bird Bakery will also be providing breakfast.

Morning Meditation

The day starts with a 15-minute 11:30 AM Meditation led by Body by Simone. Get a little om in before we bring it on home with panels and mentor sessions.  


Sure, Texas is known for its BBQ, but we’re challenging you to think outside the box. Why would lunch be any different? We’ve got something for everyone, including vegetarians! Grab some lunch from Beyond Meat, which will be serving sliders. 

Drinks & Snacks

They’ll be plenty! From RXbar, Justin’s Almond Butter Snack Packs & Hippeas. As well as Chandon, Austin Eastciders, Crown Royal cocktails, Waiakea Water, and La Croix.

Mentor Hour

As soon as you grab your food, chat with one of our amazing mentors from 12 PM - 1 PM.

Stop by to chat with our talented mentors on anything career related. They’re excited to meet everyone and share their success tips with you!

Mentors include: Sarah Kunst, Ashley Rose, Simone de la Rue, Brandy Pham, Jen Pinkston, Maxie McCoy & Sanetra Longno.

The C&C team will be standing by (in Lilac Richer Poorer shirts to help guide your to the right mentor.) You’ll be able to switch at a 30 minute mark when we announce from stage!

Shop ‘til you drop
[FYI the Fossil pop-up shop will be open Saturday as well:)]

Check out the Fossil pop up for new Fossil gear! The shop will be open all day! If that wasn’t enough, if you purchase a tote from Girls Inc, the artist @haveaniceday will be onsite customizing bags with your choice of the following phrases: Bossitivity, Woman to Watch & No Bad Days.

That’s #Bossitivity in action.

Get pampered

Hello gorgeous! Get some cute nail art courtesy of ChillHouse and then stop by R + CO hair to get touchups.

Snag Snacks

Don’t forget to delight in some homemade Holy Roller Ice cream and coffee from Chameleon Cold Brew! Everyone needs a little caffeine and sugar rush.

Snap a pic

Now that you look good- snap a pic.

It wouldn’t be C&C without a photo booth-- but Fossil is providing attendees one that will work for your career. Do not leave without grabbing a professional headshot from the Fossil headshot station.

Happy Hour!

It’s not C&C without Happy Hour. With drinks as well as small bites at the Food Bar from La Pera Austin, there will be lots to chat and cheers to.


Can I leave and come back?

Of course you’re welcome to leave--- but if you come back, you will have to wait in line again. Once you leave, we’re letting other people in who are waiting in line.

Can I save a seat?

Unfortunately, no. We will not be allowing people to save seats.

I didn’t RSVP can I still get in?

Read this one carefully! In order to gain entry, you MUST RSVP. DON’T FORGET.

Am I guaranteed entry?

As this is an RSVP only event, we cannot guarantee anyone entry. Please line-up early to secure your spot!

Will I have fun?

Oh, you betcha. *Does arm swing.* We’re throwing the best #WorkParty in town.

Can't wait to see you!
