The 12th annual Women’s Leadership Conference was held at UL today.

The event brings together students, faculty, staff and community members to commemorate the theme of National Women’s History Month.

The goal of the conference is to provide an opportunity for personal and professional leadership development that is centered on the needs of women from various cultural backgrounds.

The conference began this morning in the UL Lafayette Student Union and continued throughout the day with educational breakout sessions, inspirational awards presentations, and empowering keynote speakers.

The morning keynote speaker was Holli’ Conway, Miss Louisiana 2018.

The Keynote and Awards luncheon featured panel discussion featuring KATC TV3’s own Marcelle Fontenot, as well as KLFY’s Darla Montgomery, and News 15’s Jazmin Thibodeaux.
