The Dish: Women in the Food Industry, A Place at the Table

Wednesday, November 8, 2017
5:30pm – 7:00pm

ArtsRiot, 400 Pine St

Women play a crucial role in the food industry as farmers, chefs, entrepreneurs, producers, and resource providers. 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 Change the Story, a statewide initiative focused on “[aligning] policy, program, and philanthropy to significantly improve women’s economic status in Vermont” 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.
