About this Event

No badge necessary to attend. RSVP does not guarantee attendance to this event.

The Official Together Digital Summit at SXSW (formerly Women in Digital) in partnership with WP Engine's Shero Fair

Womxn, allies, and advocates! This event brings together the most powerful womxn in digital from across the nation for a series of talks and power panels, with our moving and sometimes life-changing Ask + Give sessions.

We'll be presenting alongside the Shero Fair, featuring several predominate non-profit organizations that benefit women in digital.

What is Womxn?

A woman (used, especially in intersectional feminism, as an alternative spelling to avoid the suggestion of sexism perceived in the sequences m-a-n and m-e-n, and to be inclusive of trans and non-binary women).

What is Together Digital?

Nearly 2,000 womxn in the creative and digital landscape, from across the country. Our members work across all digital professions from marketing and communications, advertising to design, research and development, to UX/UI, and any field where digital is your medium and tool.

What makes Together Digital unique?

We're a sisterhood without stigma. We choose collaboration over competition. And we ASK for what we need without shame, we GIVE without judgment, and GROW together.

Don't miss this empowering, educational, and motivational day.
