The Haitian Ladies Network ™ is the largest global platform connecting more than 50,000 women and girls 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 twelve-member Steering Committee. 

Our signature event is an annual three-day sold out Haitian Ladies Network ™ Weekend. Over 500 professional female leaders come together and engage with carefully curated brands and a program filled with esteemed speakers of Haitian descent. Attendees continue the post -event experience on our rapidly growing digital channels and share within our network their experiences from the weekend programming, sponsor engagement, and future initiatives. Our Network is continually cultivating a community of women igniting their power.
