The Wine and Restaurant Industry have long been a male-dominated field. This has been slowly changing over the past few decades as more and more women take up positions of power. This panel discussion is composed of Abbi Merriss- co-owner of Bluebeard, Carrie Abbott- owner of Newfangled Confections, BethAnn Kendall- Portfolio Specialist and founder of Girls Who Swirl, Wendi Gallogly- Account Executive at D&E Fine Wine and Artisinal Spirits, Jennifer Watterson- Director of Beverage & Special Events at St. Elmo Steakhouse and Harry & Izzy’s, and Leanna Chroman- VP of Culture & Learning at Huse Culinary. All of these women have pushed the boundaries and found ways to create their own places of leadership in the world of food and wine in Indy.
Join us Tuesday, October 1st at 4 pm as we kick off Women in Small Business Month in Bluebeard’s Second Story with five powerhouse women who work in all facets of the industry. This insightful discussion on what it’s like being a woman in the industry will be monitored by one of the first female sommeliers in the state, Jan Bugher, and is sponsored by Veuve Clicquot.
