AZ Women in Food - Members
What's this about?
AZWomenInFood is an alliance fostered by “Let’s Talk Womxn” a national collaboration born from the 2020 Covid-19 crisis and the James Beard Foundation Women's Leadership Program.
Let’s Talk forums connect over 350 women restaurateurs/owners across 12 cities, with both virtual sessions and on the ground initiatives.
Let’s Talk Womxn was started as a conversation forum in July 2020 for women restaurateurs to get to know each other, vent, learn from & support each other. It has explosively evolved to much more – to help women business owners build bargaining power, build visibility, combine our voice, and undertake joint economic and political action.
The goal of Let's Talk is simply to build camaraderie and harness the combined economic power of our women entrepreneurs through this crisis and beyond.
Let’s Talk is a business initiative of women restaurateurs who are battling jointly to survive this crisis. It is a story of collaboration and hope amidst doom. We are happy to share our “B cube model” to inspire other sectors and all women.
Let’s Talk is founded and led by Rohini Dey, Ph.D. Vermilion restaurateur in Chicago, former McKinsey & Co. and The World Bank, former trustee/founder/chair of the James Beard Foundation Women's Leadership Program for a decade.
We are jointly promoting our sustainable success through the pandemic and beyond, proudly working together to boost small business, learn from each other, and to share and create opportunities. We are stronger together!
This January, 2021, AZWomenInFood launched our first initiative: offering multi-restaurant tasting menus across the Valley. Fifteen of the Valley’s leading Women chefs and restauranteurs participated in this round! More collaborative dinner series are to come.
