#BUILTBYGIRLS Hashtag: Tech of Lifestyle Media @ Refinery29

location 225 Broadway | 5 PM-7 PM Wednesday 12 April 2017 (EST)

It's time for another Hashtag! This event series offers an inside look at how the hottest tech companies create the powerful products we love. We've discussed everything from the Tech of Music @ Spotify to the Tech of Digital Storytelling @ Snapchat, and now it's time to add some style into the mix.

This month we're going to explore how one of our favorite fashion & lifestyle media platforms operates on the tech side. Because we are dying to know what goes on behind the scenes at a tech company that writes everything from "What It's Really Like to Be a Female Engineer" to "Butt Glitter is a Thing, Because of Course It Is" [note from team #BBG: you can really never have too much glitter, especially if its gold], this month's Hashtag will be at…drumroll, please…Refinery29 (http://www.refinery29.com/), the #1 new-media brand for smart, creative and stylish women everywhere (aka you).

Refinery29 is the leading digital-media company focused on women with a global audience footprint of over 500 million across all platforms with an audience of 27 million monthly uniques on its website and a global reach of 225 million across platforms. Through a variety of lifestyle stories, original video programming, and social, shareable content across all platforms, Refinery29 provides its audience with the inspiration and tools to discover and pursue a more independent, stylish, and informed life.

WAIT LIST: If you're not able to get a spot, please email danielle.letayf@teamaol.com to be put on the wait list.


We have been selling out of spots for The Hashtag super quickly (which is a great thing!), but want to make sure as many people as possible get a chance to experience these events. That means that if you're registering, we expect you to come and if you're unable to attend (which totally happens), please let us know at least 2 days in advance so we can fill your spot.

We will be taking attendance and keeping track of no-shows (people who register and don't show up without telling us) for each event, and you will only be allowed 2 no-shows before we revoke your invitations going forward. Thanks for understanding :)

Can't wait! See you there.
