Hurricane Harvey

Updated 8/28/17

But right now, relief is needed in many forms. We have compiled a list of organizations and groups that are accepting donations and assistance for those affected, and we ask that you help when and where you can, both now and going forward.  Read More

TexasWomen App FAQ

How do I download the app?

Just search “TexasWomen” in your app store, or use the appropriate download link below.

Download now on the App Store  Get it now on Google Play    

What if I already have the app from the 2019 Conference?

Please delete your old app, and download the new 2020 version in your app store. This year’s version includes some awesome updates, like a matchmaking feature, access to the podcast, and much more networking! 

How do I log in?

Tap “LOGIN” in the top-right corner, then simply type in your email address and click “Continue.” NOTE: Your App login is NOT at all related to your registration login. They are completely separate systems that require 2 separate logins. If you have not used the app previously, choose the option to “Sign Up.”

How do I create a profile?

Once you’ve logged in by providing your email address, you can customize your profile by tapping “My Profile” on the home screen, or in the “My CFW” tab. Fill in as little or as much info as you’d like, but keep in mind, the more robust your profile, the better your networking experience will be.

You can only create a schedule if you’ve logged in and have finished a profile. Once this is done, simply tap the session you’d like to add to your schedule from the AGENDA screen, and then click “+ Add to My Schedule.” (If you don’t see the agenda yet, that’s just because it inst ready yet, check back soon.)

How do I view my schedule after I’ve added sessions?

In the My CFW tab, click  “My Schedule.” 

If I add sessions to my personal schedule on the app, does that mean I’m guaranteed space in that session?

NO. We do not require or allow attendees to reserve space in any session. Creating a schedule on the app simply allows you to better plan out your busy day. One of the benefits of going virtual is that no one will be locked out of any session because of capacity. (yay, technology!)

Arianna Bradley-Roth finished the Statesman Cap10K in 39:36 last year, making her the 2016 Women’s Masters Champion.

By Jeff Simecek, Statesman Cap10K Race Director

On March 12, 1978, Jimmy Carter was president, “Night Fever” by the Bee Gees was dancing at No. 1 and the Statesman Capitol 10,000 was warming up for its first race in Austin. On April 23, 2017, the largest 10K in Texas, presented by Baylor Scott & White Health, will be off to the races for the 40th time.

Past and Present: Keeping It Austin

Like its hometown, the Statesman Cap10K has always been an original. For decades, it has drawn a range of participants: from the elite and fitness-focused to families and those who just wanna have fun—that’s all they really want!

2016 Conference Day Logistics

Texas Conference For Women

November 15th is on the horizon, and in order to make your conference day go as smoothly as possible, we have a few important reminders for you.

(Stay tuned for one more email that will help you plan your day around all the great programming we’ve set up this year!)


When You Arrive…

If you already have your name badge, you do NOT need to check in at the registration desk upon arrival – you may proceed to pick up your lanyard with badge holder outside the Exhibit Hall (Halls 1 & 2) and tote bag with goodies just inside the Hall.

Seating Assignments: Your badge includes your seating assignment for lunch. We ask that you sit only at your assigned seat during that time. However, all other sessions, including the morning keynote session, are open seating.


Tip: Download the App

With so much to do in just one day, it pays to be prepared. Get a head start on planning your day—and getting to know fellow attendees, if you like—by downloading our all-new 2016 app, sponsored by Cisco and now available on all major platforms by searching “TexasWomen” (or find download links here).

Browse the full program and save your own custom agenda for the day. Share your information (optional) to make networking a breeze. Get maps, session descriptions and speaker information with a tap of the finger, and receive realtime alerts wherever you are!


Getting to the Conference

On November 15th, approximately 7,500 women will converge on the Austin Convention Center at the same time.

We cannot stress enough how important it is to plan ahead for traffic, parking and crowded public transit. We suggest you take public transportation or carpool if at all possible, and allow extra time for travel so you don’t miss anything.

Capital Metro’s MetroRail stops directly outside the Austin Convention Center (“Downtown Station”) – it couldn’t be more convenient! Visit CapMetro’s website to plan your trip by bus or rail and download the CapMetro app to pay for your fare with a credit or debit card. Please note the ticket machines at the stations now only accept cash.

For those driving, the Conference has arranged for free shuttles from Palmer Event Center Garage. Parking at Palmer is $8.

You’ll find directions, parking options, maps, discounts and help navigating public transportation on our Travel page.


Bring Your Resume

In addition to free one-on-one career coaching and professional resume review opportunities, you will find talent acquisition teams from some of our sponsors in the Career Pavilion.


A Note for Moms

The Austin Convention Center is equipped with private “nursing pods” located on the first floor outside Ballroom A. We will also provide dedicated nursing rooms in the Trinity Box Office (1st floor) and Meeting Room 13 (4th floor) with power outlets and privacy screens. You’ll find a refrigerator in MR 13 for storage. Please plan for the possibility of a crowd during peak break times and bring a battery-operated pump if you have one.
