A womxn-led conversation with the hospitality community on topics of race, gender, reopening and more.

Spirit Forward Womxn’s Empowerment Series powered by Bacardi Womxn in Leadership is back for its third consecutive year of conversation, education and inspiration. The series, taking place on June 23 virtually via Zoom, is dedicated to championing the outstanding individuals that make up the spirits trade and hospitality community, and has called upon powerful, thought-provoking speakers to offer enriching sessions.

This year’s speakers and panelists will focus on timely and relevant topics, like managing finances during a global pandemic and what to expect as bars and restaurants reopen across the world. The day will include a session on Black history within hospitality, a session with Chris Cabrera on honoring our LGBTQ+ community beyond Pride month and an episode of “Treacherous Waters” by Ashtin Berry and Maggie Campbell, in which they’ll explore themes, topics, and power dynamics of white women in relation to women of color.

Spirit Forward Womxn’s Empowerment Series is committed to discussing topics that are top of mind and instrumental in creating change within the hospitality community, beginning with the all-too-often underrepresented womxn that bind our industry together.
