others get better, will be converging on the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans, Louisiana on May 17 and 18 for Celebrating the Superwoman in You, a women's conference inviting women to rise up, stand up, and lift another woman up.  
"I am passionate about the empowerment of women," said founder Jil Greene. "Too many women find themselves in situations that they don't know how to get out of. Sometimes, the right information, the right tool, the right connection can make all the difference in putting together a plan that can change a woman's life. What we plan to do at Celebrating the Superwoman in You is provide that information, provide the tool, provide the connection so women can make the plan."
The conference begins at 4:00pm on Friday, May 17. The event kicks off with a high powered networking session with some of New Orleans top women leaders in Corporate America, Business, Law, Education, Finance, Health and Community. It will also include live music & entertainment, dramatic productions directed by Jacqueline Fleming (actress from Abraham Lincoln, Contraband, Woman Thou Art Loose), General Sessions and a late night pajama party where the women will participate in a dinner reception called "Real WYENing Conversations After Dark".

Carver Theater Rendering
2101 Orleans Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70116
Opening November 2013
Welcome back to the historic Carver Theater; during the 1950's hailed as "America's finest theater exclusively for colored patrons" with the latest in technology, architectural designs, and the finest amenities.  Return as history moves forward with the installation of the Carver Theater's new state-of-the-art natural sounding Meyer Sound Constellation; an extraordinary breakthrough in sound technology which provides the  optimal acoustical experience.
Re-designed as a live performance entertainment venue primarily focus on jazz, big band ensembles, chamber music, operetta, musicals, stage plays, dance recitals, and Off-Broadway Shows; the fully renovated 16,000-square-foot theater with the "finest amenities" will comfortably seat approximately 750 guests with the ability to accommodate a greater number for non-seated performances and special events. The beamless construction and flat flooring design provides for an obstruction less view and present endless opportunities for various productions.
State of the arts technology and the development of acoustical sound barriers designed to prevent the intrusion or extrusion of sound during performances allow the Carver to create the proper ambience for live audio and video recordings by the music, film, and entertainment industry.  Located just blocks from the French Quarter, proximal to downtown New Orleans, the Carver serves as an excellent location for music conferences, film festivals, screenings, and other arts related events.
