Celebrating women’s achievements and increasing visibility, while calling out inequality, is always key, especially during the month of International Women’s Day (March 8th). We have two special events in New Orleans that are seeking to empower women through knowledge and personal growth and through showcasing the artistry and talents. The New Orleans Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with Fidelity Bank P.O.W.E.R. (Potential of Women Entrepreneurs Realized) to host a collaborative conference for professional women called “Power Up: Women’s Leadership Conference.” This all-day event will be a professional development experience for like-minded women, including a keynote luncheon and multiple breakout sessions sponsored by network partners. This event will take place March 19th at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. For tickets and details, you can visit powerupnola.com.
An artistic showcase filled with music, food, fun, and even STEAM events for girls will start at 10 a.m. on March 21st at Lafayette Square. This is the 2nd edition of The Rock & Rouge Women’s Music & Food Festival & Beyond. The Women Who Rock stage will showcase female musicians including headliner Lena Prima. You can find more details in our cover story where we feature the talented Lani Ramos, founder of the event. The Rock & Rouge Women’s Music Festival is free to attend. This year, they are offering reserved seats with a picnic from Carmo. For more information and to purchase tickets visit therockandrouge.com.
