The culinary arts industry controls a major portion of the US food system, and there has never been a comprehensive dialogue on racial inequities in the sector—until now. National Conversation: Racial Equity in the Culinary Arts, will facilitate a move from conversation to action. The leaders in this dialogue are taking advantage of the global momentum demanding racial equity across systems to focus on our culinary industry, an industry that has been built upon —but has failed to reward and respect—the knowledge, labor, and ingenuity of enslaved and indigenous people. This leadership forum on social justice in the culinary arena features changemakers Chef Alex Askew (moderator), Chef Njathi Kabui, Chef Adán Medrano and Valerie Spain, coach and consultant for equity and belonging. Please join us for this inaugural dialogue in the Talk that Walks series.
