To celebrate Women’s History Month, we’re partnering with Audi to create a dinner series featuring talented and inspiring graduates from our Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership (WEL) program founded by Audi. As part of the Foundation’s commitment to advancing women in the industry and Audi’s #DriveProgress initiative, we’re celebrating women in culinary pushing for change. Through #DriveProgress, Audi is committed to cultivating and promoting a culture that enables women to achieve their highest potential by removing barriers to equity, inclusivity, growth and development.

For this special collaborative dinner, multiple Beard Award nominee Kelly Fields will join her WEL classmate Ann Marshall, co-founder of Hire Wire Distilling Co., for an unforgettable taste of the South.
