Wherever we identify a need for more diversity and more equality in the restaurant industry, we will find creative and forward-thinking solutions.
WOMEN CHEFS INITIATIVE
We believe there is a pressing need for more women to be in higher ranking positions in the restaurant industry. Only then, will a more balanced space exist for creativity, equality, ability and positivity. A win – win for the good of all.
One of the ways The LEE Initiative hopes to address this problem is through our six month mentorship program we named the Women Chefs Initiative. By shining a spotlight on talented but little known female chefs in the industry, we intend to elevate their presence as well as their capability. As we enter our second year of the program, The LEE Initiative will once again award five female chefs from the state of Kentucky, Southern Indiana, and Cincinnati the opportunity to learn from other successful culinary leaders and hands on experience. This program will be offered to full time culinary professionals who are not business owners or head chefs.
The award will include the following:
