She’s served on Archbishop’s Community Appeal campaigns for four different Archbishops over the course of the past 20 years. She has also worked tirelessly with the Archdiocese of New Orleans’ Catholic Charities organization and its umbrella agencies. Mrs. Benson has shown her commitment to the health and wellness of the New Orleans community with the Gayle and Tom Benson Cancer Center on the main campus of Ochsner Medical Center in Old Jefferson.

Speaker nominations are now being accepted for Women Making Waves 2019, where we will explore how involvement in professional and personal communities impacts your career.
Topics may include re-engaging in your career after a break, how volunteer connections contribute to success, the rewards of giving back, and how the overly-engaged person should manage their time.
We also welcome nominations for women leaders to share their stories on our “Herstory” panel, which has become one of the most popular sessions at the conference.
Nominations accepted through November 30th!
