Women Who Mean Business 2019

United Way of Acadiana's Women United is presenting the 2019 Women Who Mean Business Awards on Thursday, October 10, 2019 at the River Oaks Ballroom.  We are honored to be hosting this event for a second year, continuing Acadiana's time honored tradition.  2018 award recipient and Designing Women of Acadiana founder, Maureen Dugas Foster says, "It was a gratifying and validating experience to be honored with the Women Who Mean Business award for the work I hold dear to my heart. Seeing what my fellow 2018 Women Who Mean Business friends have been able to accomplish has given me a perspective that together we can make a lasting difference in our community."
