Happy International Women’s Day 2019! I’m a little late, and I almost let it slide again this year, but I actually have something to say... I’m incredibly lucky that I am in the position to work with some truly inspirational women. This year in particular I am drawn to women that are kicking ass and it’s my absolute pleasure to empower them, and be empowered by them. When I was a chef I worked in a male dominated field and I’m guilty of complicity when it comes to sexism in the workforce. I was always made to feel that I had to “go along” with jokes against women in order to fit in in the kitchen. For the first time in my life today, someone close to me said something demeaning and inappropriate about women and I dug my heels in and said “no more”. It’s not a joke, it’s not funny, it’s not lighthearted. Women should have each other’s back always! I’ve tagged in just some of the women I’ve worked with this year. Powerful, motivating, inspiring, strong, vulnerable, flawed, amazing women. I love you all. ❤️ Photo by: @jillmillerphoto
