CALL TO ACTION FOR WOMEN LEADERS: HOW TO SUPPORT WOMEN CHEFS AND RESTAURATEURS
Wettenstein is on a mission to urge women leaders and event planners to put your money where your mouth is and turn up the heat. Seek and support women chefs and restaurateurs when booking events and conferences. This is especially important for events honoring women and sponsored by women's organizations. She also recommends requesting and hiring female wait and bar staff, to support working women.
