Women's Leadership in Livingston Parish

Women are Leading in Livingston Parish

Opportunity for Livingston Parish Women

Although women have played a key part in the growth and opportunity offered in Livingston Parish, there has been limited recognition and few options for professional women to convene and learn from each other until now. Being the organization of leadership in the parish, the Chamber launched Women's Leadership Programming in 2017. This new special event for women has been a high point in Chamber programming and has successfully brought together nearly 400 women in just two years.

The Event 

Great content and speakers make for a great event. Each year, attendees leave the event with takeaways that they can apply in their personal and professional life. A "Mini Women's Expo" is set up and offers guests additional information on topics specific to women by providers. The giveaways are more than worth the price of admission, with every vendor putting their personality into the gifts to guests. Various sponsor options include major presence to table decorations for eight lucky guests. Several options for reserved table and open table seating are available. The event does sell out, though, so don't hesitate to RSVP!

Who should attend? 

Professional Women, Women in Leadership, Women in Business, Women in Management and Working Women will benefit from the event. Men are invited and encouraged to attend as well. Anyone who knows or is a woman should attend!

Topics that matter to women

The Power of Women

Women have had a high level of influence since the beginning of time. Women are not always seen upfront - take the front seat ladies! There is no mistaking the influence they have on business, their homes, purchases and other decisions. Where many women struggle is finding the balance in work, play, family and care of self. We hope to touch on as many of these areas as possible each time we gather.

Awards are based on criteria of achievement in professional excellence, contributions to improving quality of life and who actively LEAD in making Livingston Parish the better– the Chamber’s tag line and mantra
