Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Corner

The SHFM Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council exists to foster an environment that embraces diversity and inclusion at all levels within the markets we serve. Our goal is to increase the diversity of membership, champion employment opportunities, and highlight and encourage procurement opportunities for minority-owned business within the foodservice industry. We also serve as advocates to bring awareness to diversity issues surrounding the workplace hospitality segment. Our goal is to assist, support and encourage our members to better understand the importance of diversity and what it means to our organization and industry as a whole. We operate as two functional groups. One group’s focus is to increase diversity and inclusion within the SHFM operator membership. The other group’s focus is supplier development.
