NOLA Girl Biz – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

Here in the United States we like to think of ourselves as world leaders. But we’re not ahead of everybody in everything. England, Germany, India, Israel, Pakistan, Australia and New Zealand have all elected women presidents and prime ministers.

In business in the U.S. we’re still fighting for equal pay and figuring out what equality means – from bathrooms to board rooms.

And so – as it has done many times before – America turns to New Orleans to lead the way. We brought the nation opera, jazz, Mardi Gras, and the go-cup. And now we’re giving them women owned and women-centric businesses. Namely, The Girls Guide to New Orleans, and Dashing Bicycles.
