Food in Action on a mission to improve gender equality

By 9 July, 2018News

On August 28th CEO & Founder Fia Gulliksson will travel to Copenhagen to moderate the Freja Symposium; a meeting that aims improve gender equality in the hospitality industry of the Nordic countries.

Freja Symposium is going to be part of the Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival, the symposium and will serve as the launch for an ongoing campaign to create equal opportunities for leadership and recognition in the Nordic hospitality industry.

About Freja Symposium

“The Nordic countries are known for their equality and for the gastronomic revolution of the ‘new Nordic kitchen’. But for some reason, the gender equality hasn’t made it into the leadership level in the hospitality industry. We want to find out why – and do something about it!

Freja Symposium has been created by an advisory board consisting of Kamilla Seidler, Trine Hahnemann, Lisa Abend, Titti Quarnström, Virginia Anne Newton, Melina Shannon-DiPietro, Marie Sainabou Jeng, Monica Berg and Mette Dahlgaard.

And we hope to be joined by other people of the hospitality industry to network, inspire and decide which actions we should take together to improve gender equality in our industry.” Read more here
