Are children permitted?

You know that we Haitian women love our children, and we welcome mothers! We want Haitian Ladies Weekend to be a multigenerational experience.

The Haitian Ladies Symposium is an active day of workshops and networking that is best geared to children who are high school age and older.

The Haitian Ladies Brunch is purely a social affair that can better accommodate elementary school-age children. With this guidance, we ask that you use your discretion and judgment in bringing your children to take part in the activities during Haitian Ladies Weekend.

Is there a dress code?

For the symposium, business wear is perfect.

For the Sunday brunch, we encourage you to be festive and express your unique fashionista style.

Do I have to live in DC to attend?

No. Although we began as a vehicle to gather Haitian ladies in the Washington, DC metro area, in recent years Haitian ladies from out of state and out of country have attended.
