4th Annual Summit

4th Annual Summit

Friday, October 6, 2023 (7:00 AM - 10:00 PM) (CDT)


Ellevate Louisiana's 4th Annual Summit will take place on October 5-6, 2023 at the newly renovated InterContinental Hotel in New Orleans. We will kick off the Summit on Thursday afternoon with policy committee meetings at the InterContinental. Ellevate Louisiana will host a Gubernatorial Forum on Thursday evening, starting with a Candidate's Reception at 6:00p. Registration for the Forum can be accessed HERE. Friday morning will begin with breakfast and the Ellevate Louisiana Annual Business Meeting. Then we will hear from leading experts regarding analysis of Louisiana's elections, which will take place a week later. We will have a close up view of the policy implications of those elections, a look at the historical mood of the legislature and what we might expect in the next legislature, along with our annual favorite - the Media Panel. You will have the chance to network with accomplished women leaders from all around Louisiana and enjoy an empowering keynote address from Deborah Grant (formerly Elam) entitled "Leading with Purpose." To top it all off, we will be closing the Summit on Friday evening with a Signature Dinner at Galatoire's Restaurant with a special menu and a private balcony overlooking Bourbon Street!  A full detailed agenda will be sent out soon.
