State of the Coast’s inaugural Women’s Coastal Leadership event at our last conference was full of inspiring conversation with some of Louisiana’s most influential women. We hope that you will join us this year.

 

This event is a woman-focused event that intends an inclusive definition of women. We are welcoming and respectful of women, including trans women and those who are nonbinary, gender non-conforming, and anyone who identifies as a woman in a way that is significant to them. We also welcome allies who are committed to creating environments that are supportive of people who are typically underrepresented in the workplace and beyond.
