Creating Your Path to Success: A Conversation with WWL-TV Anchor & Author Sheba Turk, Presented by Patrick J. Gros, CPA

WWL-TV Morning News Anchor Sheba Turk has just written her first book, Off Air: My Journey to the Anchor Desk. Turk moved up the ranks quickly at WWL, making her way from behind the scenes to the anchor desk in just about two years. She knows that her story will resonate with anyone busy chasing their own dreams. Turk wasn't always clear about what her future would look like but she was determined to be successful. In this session, Turk discusses how she worked through obstacles many of us encounter in life, seized opportunities, and carved a unique path to success for herself.

 

Featuring:

Sheba Turk, Author & Anchor

Interviewed by:

Monica Pierre, Author & Instructor at Xavier University

#YouToo: Personal & Professional Challenges in Today’s World

Presented by Ochsner Baptist

The #MeToo movement has brought to the forefront the terrible reality for many women of what it's like to be harassed in the office and not have anywhere to turn. That said, Hollywood remedies seem a world

away in many workplaces in the South. FestiGals is bringing together a panel of HR experts with dozens of years of experience between them to give you practical tips mixed in with your rights based on the law. You'll also have time to your questions answered.

 

Conversation with:

Stefanie Allweiss, Co-Founder of Gotcha Covered HR.

Barbara Johnson, Chief HR Officer at Creole Cuisine

Shawanda Poree, Director of Healthcare Recruitment & Marketing at Veterans Health Administration

Moderated by:

Ashley O, On-Air Personality, Cumulus Media

 
Session Two
11:00-12:00PM

Did you know that dis-ease (symptoms) can lead to disease if left unresolved and that 85% of all disease is caused by stress and poor nutrition?  What is your body asking for in order to bring about inner balance (homeostasis)? Join our session to learn about how Infusion Therapy, Integrative Medicine, and Holistic Modalities can help empower you to start living a happy and healthy lifestyle, instead of just merely existing.

It's Our Time to Make an Impact with Renee Horton

The time is now to embrace the true influences of women on today's (and future) societies. Our voices should be used for girls and women, locally, nationally, and globally, to demand equal treatment, equal education, gender equality in the workplace, and the right to thrive without being sexually objectified. As the participation of women increases in local markets and governments, as CEOs and University Presidents, we must capitalize on this unprecedented opportunity to affect change for the greater good 

Where are you in this impact, where are you going to make a change?

and to make the greatest impact on our current and future society.
