Looking to pinpoint your or your chapter’s philanthropic passion? Join LDEI Woman of Purpose nominees who are also participants in our “Inspire & Thrive: Women of Purpose Fostering the Future”* leadership/mentorship group for some real inspiration.

Moderated by Jacqui Pressinger, the panelists will share how their passion came to fruition, how being community driven benefits everyone, and how you can go about seeking out (or starting!) organizations that best align with your ideals.

*Worth Noting: In 2021, Les Dames d’Escoffier International (LDEI) in partnership with YETI introduced the LDEI Woman of Purpose Award, recognizing an exceptional Dame who has set herself apart by making a positive impact in a local or global community, incorporating the important and complex realms of global sustainability, food justice and public health ~ a visionary woman who has made strides towards improving our food system.

Twenty-one women were nominated. This exceptional field of nominees wanted to go above and beyond, and these impactful Dames were thrilled to have the opportunity to inspire others.
