Louisiana Leadership Organization
Founded in 1990, the Louisiana Center for Women in Government and Business (LCWGB) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan leadership organization dedicated to empowering women and promoting female involvement. The Center, housed at Nicholls State University, is governed by a board of highly accomplished women from all over Louisiana who are passionate about using their personal talents and strengths to empower and embolden other women.
For more than 20 years, the LCWGB has been promoting female leadership in government and business through a variety of non-partisan outreach and educational programs for women. The Center’s statewide leadership programming includes Louisiana Girls Leadership Academy, National Women’s Leadership Summit on Small Business Entrepreneurship, Non-Partisan Campaign Institute, Congress to Campus and Hall of Fame Ceremony. The LCWGB also partners with other organizations in support of its programs.

CONGRESS TO CAMPUS
Sunday, Feb 9 – Wednesday, Feb 12, 2020

From Dr. Laura Badeaux to Faculty in Business, Maritime Program, Government, Communications, Petroleum Services and Education:
“Congress to Campus” is coming to Nicholls State University February 9, 10,11, 12, 2020, to speak to students whose education may enable them to aspire to public service. Hosted by the Louisiana Center for Women in Government and Business (LCWGB) housed at NSU, the program sends bi-partisan Congressmen from the National Association of Former Members of Congress.
Former Republican Congressman Dan Miller from Florida and Former Democratic Congressman Peter Kostmayer from Pennsylvania, will be NSU’s guests. Your course in the spring, such as 3M Public Affairs Reporting, appears to be one from whom we think the students will benefit and through whom we think Louisiana and America may benefit if public service becomes a focus of our students in the future.
In addition, a reception with the Congressmen, President Jay Clune, Lafourche and Terrebonne officials, and community leaders will be held at the home of Chip and Laura Badeaux, Sunday, February 9, 2020, 6 until 8 PM, so that you may meet the Congressmen in advance of your academic interaction.
