Looking for that session where you can find answers to all manner of Agile questions? Are you wondering where you can find women who are just as passionate as you are about practicing Agile? We've got you covered! We're Austin Women in Agile. Yes, we're part of a national chapter, but we have an Austin flavor all our own. We are building a trusted, personal community of Agile practitioners who live and work with integrity and intention. We practice vulnerability, kindness, and radical accountability. We empower others, celebrate our wins, learn from our mistakes, and step together into our full potential.

Mindy Honcoop, Taylor Frank, Sydney Markle, Kate Kolchier and Erin Randall will lead Lean Espresso round-table discussions. They have experience as Scrum Masters, Agile Coaches, Tribe Leaders to Agile squads, Product Owners, a Marketing Whiz, a Bikablo fangirl, a Human Resource Dynamo, and even a Chief JIRA Goddess. They banded together to make Austin Women in Agile a reality in the autumn of 2018, and they want to bring intentional, authentic Agile practices to even more people.
