2019 Women in Construction Convening: The Power of Connectivity

New Orleans Jazz Market

The Urban League of Louisiana’s Women’s Business Resource Center is excited to host its 2019 Women in Construction Convening: The Power of Connectivity, on Thursday, October 17, 2019, 8:30am-3:00pm, at the New Orleans Jazz Market, 1436 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., New Orleans, LA. We are excited to offer this dynamic event in support of women in construction across the state of Louisiana and welcome your support. Connectivity is a measure of the extent to which the components of a network are linked to one another, and the ease and speed with which they can leverage the value of one another. In essence, the connectivity of a network is an important measure of its productivity and resilience. For networks to become powerful, they must be interconnected, and for women in construction, this is no different. Connectivity creates diversity, innovation, and resilience within our professional and personal networks and our businesses. During the 2019 Women in Construction Convening, participants will learn more about the networks that exist to support and promote women in construction across the region, and how they can best leverage these resources. Topics discussed include: From Myths to Mitigation: Risk Management in Construction and Employment Law The New World Order of Green Building Practices: What You Should Be Doing Now Money Matters: Financial Planning and Wealth Building Strategies for Women in Construction Managing Your People: Process and Compliance Don't miss this awesome event! Registration is now available. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Klassi Duncan at
