In honor of International Women’s Day, we are excited to announce that applications for the 2019 Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Program (WEL) are open as of today, March 8. WEL is a part of our Women’s Leadership Programs presented by Audi.

The WEL program is a unique opportunity for 20 female entrepreneurs across the culinary and hospitality industries to hone their business skills and network with other chefs, investors, and business owners. The curriculum focuses heavily on growth, and participants should expect to leave feeling inspired and ready to take on new challenges.

The 2019 WEL program will take place between October 27 and November 1 at Costanoa in Pescadero, San Francisco, with all expenses paid by the James Beard Foundation.

See if the WEL program is right for you.
