Our Board Member

Fellow BCA Global members, supporters, and visitors:

Welcome to BCA Global. Thanks to you, we have come a long way from our humble beginnings back in 1998. Diversity (still a familiar buzzword today) was not a well-known subject in theculinary, foodservice and hospitality industries at the time of our inception. Despite the level of attention given to the topic of diversity today, there is still plenty of action that needs to be taken to help move this forward.

Our top priority remains to connect young professionals of color with industry professionals, while simultaneously focusing on the border goal of penetrating areas of the industry still very much void of diversity. We aim to develop a global consciousness based on cultural diversity, heritagehealth and racial equity in all respects of the food space and the many industries that are connected. Society in general, and in the culinary and hospitality industry in particular, can be greatly impacted if we pursue this approach for advancing diversity. Now is the time to have the conversations, both familiar and especially the ones that are uncomfortable. This is probably the most important challenge facing the industry and society today. Your decision to support BCA Global and its mission will help contribute to greater this greater understanding the mindfulness of diversity now and in our future.
