The Haitian Ladies Network ™ is the largest global platform connecting more than 45,000 women of Haitian descent from across the U.S., Haiti, Canada, Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean. Based in Washington, DC, the Haitian Ladies Network ™ is a powerful professional and social network led by a nine-member Steering Committee. 

Our signature event is now an annual three-day sold out Haitian Ladies Network ™ Weekend. Over 500 professional women leaders come together and engage with carefully curated brands and esteemed speakers of Haitian descent. Attendees continue the post-event experience on our rapidly growing digital platforms and share within our network their experiences with the weekend programming and sponsor engagement.
