Event description

Description



Join us for our second annual Community Symposium, with this year’s theme Build Our Own Table. Through collaboration and ownership of our resources as a means of collective survival in mind, we have put together a day-long event aimed at skillsharing knowledge specific to business and project growth. We’ll be discussing the leveraging of tools like tech and social media, and the demystification of institutional terms like ‘investment capital’ or ‘equity’ from abstract ideas to entry points for developing models of WOC-centered ownership. We will also build space for centering, self-care, and break-out topics such as Zero Waste.

We will bring together a diverse group of WOC who are thought leaders, entrepreneurs, activists, chefs, and cooks, doing powerful food-centered work.

Complimentary breakfast refreshments, happy hour, and raffle prize entry are included with ticket purchase.
