This is networking on another level. We’re obsessed with carving out new ways for members to connect and collaborate (and we’re killing it, in our opinion)

From summits, to courses, to workshops, to meet-ups and ask-me-anythings – there is something for everyone here. Listen in, attend in person or virtually, ask questions, or simply add to your when-you-can checklist of everything you need to know.

Lorraine Oberholtzer

Consulting Dietitian

When I looked around the room and heard the stories of the women in attendance, I truly felt an instant bond-these women emitted such a warmth, strength and resilience! They were overcomers and the type to press-on despite the odds. Even after the better part of two decades in the food industry, I felt I learned something from each woman in attendance that night.
