Tuesday, February 12th from 7pm – 9pm in Studio 6, KLRU is hosting the event Inspiring Women Leaders, featuring profiles of women doing great work in the Austin community. One of them is about Katherine Craft, Conspire’s founder! KLRU was able to gain access to the Hilltop Unit in Gatesville to film a workshop with women in prison there. This is the first in-prison footage ever taken of a Conspire workshop. You’ll finally be able to see what we do! If you’re in Austin, please come – it’s free!
Here’s what KLRU has to say about the event:
KLRU, the University of Texas Center for Women’s and Gender Studies, and the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders invite you to a discussion about cultivating leadership. The evening will also feature short video features on local women and girls making a difference in the Austin community and a preview of the PBS series MAKERS: Women Who Make America.
Inspiring Women Leaders, a discussion about cultivating leadership, will focus on inspiring future generations through mentorship and other means. Speakers will include:

As part of the event, KLRU will present eight short videos featuring local women and girls who are inspiring others through their actions. These women were nominated by the community to be featured as part of KLRU’s participation in the national Women and Girls Lead campaign. A preview from the upcoming PBS documentary MAKERS: Women Who Make America – a film that shares the stories of exceptional women whose pioneering contributions continue to shape the world in which we live – will also be shown.
