Social Justice in the Foodservice Industry

Wed, Jun 9, 2021 · 11:00 AM · Central Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

The movement for racial and social justice in America has forced foodservice businesses to recognize systemic inequities, unconscious biases, and lack of representation in the industry. What is the restaurant’s role in this movement and what’s their obligation to reflect the voices of those they serve? Hear from experts about what consumers want to see from restaurants during this pivotal time, and how businesses can best serve their communities.

This webinar is approved for 1 Continuing Education Hour by the American Culinary Federation (ACF), and 1 Continuing Education Unit by the Foodservice Consultants Society International (FCSI). Please contact programming@winsightmedia.com after you've attended the session to request a certificate of attendance.
