Community, History and Growth

As the hospitality industry responds to its contemporary growth, it is equally as imperative that we encourage the recognition of our past - those histories and contributions that have been marginalized or left untold, specifically those of people of color.

Seminars, ‘Experientials’ & Cocktail parties!

Over the course of the two main event days, participants will attend a combination of educational seminars, experiential and cocktail events.

Each seminar is a symposium-style discussion lead by a variety of industry professionals, writers, historians and community leaders. Our experiential programming is meant to inspire community with more hands-on orientated curriculum. Cocktail events offer time to celebrate our community and appreciate our partnerships!

Dinner, drinks & Discussion

Resistance Served evenings are accompanied by Dinner Series meant to serve as a more intimate forum hosted by leading chefs, sommeliers, and beverage directors.

Each Dinner Series is hosted by a chef that occupies a variety of intersectional identities - chef, minority, historian, performance artists, beverage innovator, queer, educator, writer, community worker - identities that influence their work both inside and outside of the restaurant environment.  

Attendees will not only partake in some delicious food, but also have the opportunity to witness a unique expression of cuisine, art and culture.
