WCR Connects Women In Food
WCR is a professional association that supports women from all walks of the food & beverage community. WCR is unique because it is led by volunteer members that make up the WCR Board of Directors and the many committees that manage and support every aspect of the organization.
WCR has made an impact on my life because female support is especially important in a male dominated business such as the restaurant industry. Through WCR women have the chance both to serve as mentors and to seek out mentors who can provide support for the unique issues we face including the physical pace required of chefs, the compromises to family life that are required, and the mental fortitude for typically being one of only a few women on staff.
