In honoring the work and contributions of powerful women at SXSW EDU’s International Women’s Day Celebration, we would like to recognize Roseana Auten (1962-2021), the spouse of SXSW Co-Founder and CEO Roland Swenson. Her legacy and fighting spirit is felt in all the steps we’ve taken to return to an in-person event. Roseana will forever be remembered as a unique and fiercely independent woman of substance.
