A new roundtable series from Reset the Table and The Food Group will address the current inequalities within the foodservice industry and what it will take to create sustainable change. The first virtual roundtable focusing on Diversity and Inclusion will go live on Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at 2:00 pm ET, and can be registered for at Reset the Table’s website.
The new digital series will bring together leading chefs, decision-makers at the nation’s largest restaurant chains, manufacturers and more to openly discuss the industry’s biggest challenges and what it will take to resolve them. Each roundtable will highlight a specific and timely issue like Diversity and Inclusion, Gender Equality, Community Support and more.
The Diversity and Inclusion roundtable will feature:
- Selassie Atadika, chef/owner of Midunu and policy change advocate
- Kamillah Knight, co-founder of Éclat Culture LLC
- Michelle Robinson, director, early talent and frontline for Sodexo
The mission of the new roundtable is to bring together a network of strong industry leaders to inspire measurable actions toward the progression of equality, representation and leadership within the profession.
“We want to shine a light on the women and men striving to level the playing field and give otherwise unheard voices a chance to speak up,” says Pam Bevilacque, senior vice president, client service and strategy, The Food Group. “We have asked leaders in the foodservice industry to share their personal experiences and insights so that we can start to understand what changes need to be made and take the necessary steps to evolve the industry forward.”
