MSWIT’s primary objectives are to provide opportunities for women in the travel and tourism industries to network locally, nationally, and internationally with contacts that will contribute to their professional and personal growth and to encourage and assist women to improve their knowledge and experience through educational programs.

Our partner charities:

Cancer Association of Louisiana (CALA), a non-profit United Way community impact partner, prides itself in protecting and defending the community against cancer through education, outreach, research and assistance of needy cancer patients. CALA’s patient services program provides vital prescription medications and necessities to cancer patients who otherwise would have to do without.

New Orleans Family Justice Center is a partnership of agencies dedicated to ending family violence, child abuse, sexual assault, and stalking through prevention and coordinated response by providing comprehensive client-centered empowerment services in a single location.

Dress for Success New Orleans is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization that works with over 50 New Orleans agencies to identify women who, with a hand up, not a handout, can gain employment and economic independence.  It is evident when our clients get meaningful employment and economic independence, their families, and the entire community benefits.

University of New Orleans Hotel Restaurant & Tourism Master's Program Scholarship - a $1000 award will be awarded to an outstanding student in the Master's Program.
