Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee: September 2021 Update

The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee was formed to help create a community experience that is open, welcoming, and demonstrates our values to our industry.

DE&I Resources and Training Debuting this Fall

  • Glossary of Terms: The committee is compiling a comprehensive list of definitions for terms pertaining to DEI, BIPOC, LGBTQ+ issues. This resource is being edited and made user-friendly so we can share it as a resource for MAFSI members.
  • Resource List: They are also developing a list of resources for reference for DEI in the foodservice industry working on a “best practices” list.
  • DEI Training: For MAFSI ‘22, they are also developing two DEI sessions.
