CAN YOU STAND THE HEAT? Gender Bias in the Professional Kitchen
May 10 @ 18:30 - 20:00
c Bridging the gap between gender segregation and removing stereotyping in the kitchen will be up to the current generation of cooks and their responsibility to pass these credos down to the next. How individuals are treated in professional kitchens, what it means to be a woman in that environment, and what the future might hold for tomorrow’s cooks will be the theme of our May WICE Lite talk.
