Not on the Menu: A Conversation on Sexual Harassment in the Restaurant Industry

June 10, 2021 at 2:00pm3:00pm

Please join Carla Reeves and the Victim Rights Law Center for their Young Leadership Council’s virtual panel, Not on the Menu: A Conversation on Sexual Harassment in the Restaurant Industry on Thursday, June 10 at 2pm ET.

As restaurants begin to reopen, there is one thing that needs to be left off this summer’s menu – sexual harassment. A pervasive issue in restaurants, perpetrated both by colleagues and patrons, work can be a place of disrespect, harassment, and assault for many – often without any repercussions for the assailant.

Join the VRLC for a conversation with Elle Simone of America’s Test Kitchen, Boston restaurateur Tiffani Faison of Bravo’s Top Chef, along with Danya Landis, co-owner of restaurant Machina Kitchen, and Stephanie Holt, VRLC Senior Attorney. Employment attorney Carla Reeves of Goulston & Storrs will moderate the discussion which will outline the issue, possible solutions, and bring much-needed awareness to the plight of many restaurant workers across the country.

All proceeds from this event will go directly to support the mission of the VRLC which is to provide legal representation to survivors of rape and sexual assault to help rebuild their lives; and to promote a national movement committed to seeking justice for every rape and sexual assault survivor.
