Changing Women's Lives... One Woman at a Time.

The American Business Women’s Association (ABWA) was created because women need an environment where they can come together and pursue opportunity.


ABWA provides the framework so you can focus and define your aspirations, with the support of others. The LaCapitale chapter of Baton Rouge holds monthly meetings and other events for networking and professional development.

The ABWA LaCapitale chapter holds monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of every month. Other events, such as fundraisers and special events, are held occasionally. See the Events page for info on events.
