Recognizing Greater New Orleans businesses that demonstrate dedication

drivers that can be critical to an organization’s success, including
alignment, execution, and connection.

customers. We strive to cultivate an engaged internal community, teams
that serve our customers and partners with the kind of hospitality and
spirit you can only get in New Orleans,” said Michael J. Sawaya,
Convention Center President. “Our employees’ hard work enables us to
be a leading-edge organization in the conventions and events industry.
We appreciate our team members who consistently show up with a relentless
dedication to our customers, community, and purpose.”

NOENMCC is committed to creating a culture and workplace that is
fundamentally inclusive, an organization where everyone can find a sense
of belonging and thrive professionally. Equitable hiring has been a
longstanding priority at the NOENMCC, and its workforce mirrors the New
Orleans’ demographics. This mission directly led to the recent
creation of a Chief Diversity Officer position, the first convention
center in the nation to carve out this leadership role.
