Leading Industry Women Share Insights—and Optimism

LATEST NEWS | NOVEMBER 22, 2020

As we near the end of the calendar year and prepare to bid adieu to an especially fraught and challenging 2020, some of the leading women in wine and hospitality are ready to enter the new year with optimism and creativity.

“A spirit of hope emerged during the annual Next Big Bite panel discussion organized by the New York chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier (LDNY).”

As captured by SevenFifty Daily editors in their article “Leading Industry Women Share Insights—and Optimism”, adaptability and an entrepreneurial spirit will, now more than ever, spell success for communities, brands, and businesses alike in 2021.

“The annual Women in Wine Leadership Symposium (WWLS), hosted by Winebow Imports, went virtual and national on October 20 for the first time since its inception in 2012. A mostly female audience tuned in to hear panelists discuss how to build a more diverse, inclusive, and successful industry.”

From operating a restaurant and developing a more diverse and inclusive hospitality industry to expanding the definition of sustainability, speakers from this year’s Next Big Bite panel and the Women in Wine Leadership Symposium shared their visions for the future.
