SXSW is upon us! With causes like the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement shaping up to be hot topics at this year’s event, we welcome one of the exciting organizations leading the charge for female empowerment in the workplace: Women in Digital. Two leaders of the Austin Women in Digital chapter, Elise McDougall and Alison Kwong, join us for this episode of The Good Stuff and The Noise. Joey and Kim hear all about the organization’s unique approach to helping its members blaze a path toward an equal future where all women in the industry feel empowered, inspired, and educated.

You can check out Women in Digital here to find your local chapter. Membership means you’ll meet talented women working across all digital mediums, experience levels, industries and disciplines. We particularly enjoyed hearing about Women in Digital’s “Ask + Give + Grow” strategy, where members are actively encouraged to give and receive help and advice in a safe, constructive setting. And for those attending SXSW 2018, don’t miss the Women in Digital Rally on the evening of March 12.
