Presented by Technomic & The Re-Seasoning Coalition

The Re-Seasoning Coalition is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the representation of Black Canadians in foodservice through research, programming and community. Supported by Restaurants Canada.

Following the murder of George Floyd in May 2020, industries across the spectrum were rocked by widespread public demand for change to the racial inequities present in organizations with a ceiling for Black talent. Learn what it’s like to be a Black employee in the kitchen and a Black guest at a restaurant in this insightful session that offers organizations an opportunity to consider how they can become more equitable for a stronger bottom line.
