2015 WCR National Conference

Event Information

The focus of women in the industry is one of the hottest topics in the media today, and it’s on the lips of every woman working in the food and beverage and related businesses. The culinary professions are richly populated with XX chromosomes, and yet there has been a serious attention deficit in the media for our gender’s strong and rising stars. At the 2015 New York conference, WCR will spotlight new ways of garnering attention in your respective fields, an action plan to engage the media, communication highlights to maximize your social media tools, and many more ways to join forces and collectively ‘take a bigger bite.’
