None of this is exactly why we ask Jody to speak.
Jody defined for herself expanded roles within and outside of her industry.
Child advocacy and hunger relief world-wide, Local farms and artisnal food producers, Partners in Health, Greater Boston Food Bank, Share our Strength, Pan-Mass Challenge
She invests in her tremendous talents, connects with community and figures out a how to spend time, resources, and energies on things that personally and socially matter outside of the walls of her own restaurants.
How does she make the key career decisions that allow for this influence and freedom to pursue personal goals and initiate and institute social change through both business and outside endeavors?
Our speakers are women who have made an impact in their fields, define their own success and have some wisdom or point of view to share. Jody embodies this spirit!
