2018 Haitian LadiesWeekend
October 5-7, 2018
Haitian Ladies Weekend is the annual gathering of women of Haitian descent in the nation's capital uniquely designed by us and for us to connect, inspire and learn from each other.
The 2nd Annual Haitian Ladies Symposium was on Saturday, October 6th on the campus of George Washington University in the Jack Morton Auditorium.
There were two powerful themes:
Our featured speakers included award-winning journalists Yamiche Alcindor and Jacqueline Charles, former Obama administration official and senior health executive J. Nadine Gracia, MD, and Haiti Olympic swimmer Naomy Grand’Pierre. We offered a Youth Leaders session for high school Haitian Ladies ages 13-18.
The 13th Annual Haitian Ladies Brunch was on Sunday, October 7th at the Embassy of Haiti.
Engaging with Haiti
The Strength of Haitian Women
Please note that there were two events on two separate dates at two different locations that both required payment.
During the early bird registration period, we offered Symposium/Brunch Combo packages that
included a discount.
