The Dish

The Dish

City Market and the Intervale Center have teamed up to create a new exploratory series called The Dish. With support from ArtsRiot, we’ll host quarterly panel discussions to dive into hot food issues with the help of local experts.

The Dish: Women in the Food Industry 2.0

Wednesday, November 7, 2018
5:30pm – 7:00pm
ArtsRiot, 400 Pine St

Doors open at 5:00pm. Cash bar.

After starting the conversation in November of 2017, we’re back to continue exploring the issue of women in the food industry with an incredible lineup of panelists. Join us for an evening of conversation at ArtsRiot as part of our Dish series. 

Women play a crucial role in the food and beverage industry as farmers, chefs, producers, and entrepreneurs. While progress has been made in recognition of that role and the economic and social benefits of gender diversity in the workplace, women still face barriers to entry in many fields within the food system. Join us for a conversation moderated by longtime Vermont food journalist, Melissa Pasanen as we explore the challenges and successes experienced by women in the industry here in our state. We will hear from these leaders in their fields about the trends they see in the industry’s approach to female leadership, how Vermont compares to other areas in the country in terms of gender equity, and how they found “a place at the table” in these typically male-dominated fields.
