The 2023 Inspiring Women Breakfast was another success this year! Hosted by the always supportive Margaritaville Resort and Casino, the attendants gathered for a delicious breakfast and time of networking together.
In addition to catching up with old friends and making new connections at our breakfast event, we were inspired by the passion and commitment of our knowledgeable speaker, Webster Parish Detective Heather Boucher. Heather shared with us how to be aware and recognize the signs of sex trafficking and sex crimes in women and children, as well as spoke on issues impacting those most vulnerable in our community and surrounding area. We are very appreciative of the information she shared with our attendees and are already looking forward to next year’s breakfast!

The 2023 IWW Luncheon has been our most well attended event to date. Not only did patrons brave terrible weather, but they gathered with a heart to learn from our engaging speakers and gain insight on how to better serve our community. The theme of this year’s luncheon was Awareness of Domestic Violence in our Community. Because of the generous support of our attendees and the number of tables and tickets were sold, the nonprofit organizations selected as the beneficiaries of the luncheon this year were able to apply the resources to meet some of their long list of needs.
We were enlightened with several dynamic speakers for our 2023 luncheon. On the agenda was Schuyler Marvin, District Attorney, Jeri Bowen from the Northwest Louisiana Family Justice Center, and Angela Henderson from Project Celebration. We were not only informed, but inspired with all that our speakers shared with us. Although often times our speakers disclose details that are tough to hear, we appreciate the insight and information offered and the opportunity to partner with them to help those that need it most. The Commission for Women of Bossier City sincerely thanks you for your partnership.
Now, on to 2024 Inspiring Women Week!
