NCJW is thrilled to be working with a diverse network of non-profit organizations named Louisiana Women's Round-table. This group is coordinating to present discussion forum's to the public on policy issues that impact the lives of women and families. On February 19th we hosted our first in our round-table series, What Matters to Women, Matters to America. Moderated by Sally J. Kenney, Executive Director of Newcomb College Institute, the panel engaged the audience in a critical discussion about how public policies intersect in a way that could have a long-lasting impact women's futures. We would like to thank Sally Kenney, Tania Tetlow, Marjorie Esman, Karissa Haugeberg, and Beth Willinger for participating in this discussion and our co-sponsors for making this a wonderful event.

We will host another panel in the Fall, so keep an eye on your newsletters for more information.
