Sexual harassment, motherhood, Brexit, and behaviour in the workplace were among the topics discussed at Ladies of Restaurants’ second “in conversation” event, which took place last week.
The event at Our/London distillery was attended by more than 80 leading women from companies including Pizza Pilgrims, Inception Group, Tonkotsu, Pho, Soho House and Firmdale Hotels.
The conversation included questions such as “how do you deal with senior male directors taking credit for your work”, “how do you handle the pressures of work and having a family”, and “what can be done to encourage more women into top positions to break the pay gap”?
Ladies of Restaurants was launched in 2016 to help women who work in hospitality meet other women for support and advice.
The collective, which is run by Natalia Ribbe-Szrok (Eighty Six List), Grace Willis (Spring) and Libby Andrews (Pho), now has more than 300 members from all areas of the industry.
