The economic repercussions of the pandemic created the need for many businesses to reevaluate on every level. Among the businesses hardest hit are those in the food industry. Our esteemed panel of leaders will share their experiences in not only pivoting, but in using this crossroads moment to fundamentally evolve their businesses and potentially change the industry itself.

Join in the conversation as we discuss current and post-Covid business strategies; the value of the industry to our local economy; racial, gender and worker equity, and parity in food access.

Women Changing the City is a series of noteworthy panels featuring accomplished women from the business community. These discussions reveal the expertise, inner strength, vision and imagination that fueled their successes, and influenced positive change. Events include time for Q&A and plenty of networking.
