In light of recent events it is important we stop and look at how we spot, call out and address abusive behaviour in our restaurants. With social media, the idea of 'the restaurant' is wider than just the four walls. How do we navigate that landscape and support our community to ensure that it’s a safe space to work in?
We are hosting a panel discussion in London at 7pm on Monday 30 July with Andy Oliver of som saa, Mandy Yin of Sambal Shiok, Ben Chapman of Smoking Goat & KILN and Elizabeth Haigh. Chaired by Anna Sulan Masing, it will address the recent racist social media posts plus a wider look at what has been learnt, what there is still to learn and how we can discuss difficult subjects.
This panel discussion should be seen as the beginning of an ongoing dialogue, which we hope you will take to your own place of work – not just on racism, but wider inequalities in the industry. CODE will work with employers and employees to draw up a progressive document of guidelines to be published – contributions and comments very welcome.
This is an industry-only, community event. It will be free to attend but ticketed. If you would like to register to come along, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a good week.
Adam Hyman and Lisa Markwell
