An inaugural publication from New Orleans CityBusiness seeks to showcase the tangible and innovative efforts by for-profit companies to advance women in the workplace and community, and Cypress Planning Group is honored to be in this number as an honoree in the 2023 Edition of Empowering Women.  

A company founded on a culture of empowering women, Cypress Planning Group continually reaffirms its promise of elevating women.

“By founding Cypress Planning Group, we’ve been able to bring our passion for the meetings industry to life. We’ve created a successful brand with a tailored hands-on approach to servicing our clients and working with hotels and suppliers,” commented co-founder and partner Angele du Passage.

​Criteria considered in evaluating 2023 Empowering Women honorees included demonstrating a commitment to some or all of the following:

  • Have a track record of recruiting, hiring and promoting women in their organization.

  • Offer a mentoring program for women.

  • Work toward systemic change in society to combat inequality.

  • Place women on their board or C-Suite.

  • Contribute to advancing the cause of women through outside philanthropic or community endeavors.

  • Provide scholarship assistance to women.

With extensive experience in the hospitality industry, the Cypress Planning Group team has a unique perspective on bringing the big picture from the boardroom to the conference hotel. 

Du Passage continued, “Growing a successful meeting planning business founded and led by women has been incredibly rewarding, and we continue to look for opportunities to elevate women in and outside the hospitality industry.”   ​
