At Les Dames d’Escoffier ( LDEI) Palm Springs chapter, one of our guiding principles is valuing the differences among people and culture in our chapters, communities, and in the world at large. We believe that LDEI’s openness and diversity is a fundamental strength of our organization and that our mission is best fulfilled when we embrace diversity as a key valuable and practice.
It is important to note that we were founded on the very principle of gender equality LDEI founder Carol Brock saw that the inequities that women faced in the food and hospitality industry and made it her goal to make a difference by forming an organization of women leaders in food, beverage, and hospitality. By forming diversity equity and inclusion committees, we are honoring Carol's legacy and for moving forward with her vision.
Opening our membership to all qualified women who are leaders by example, building a professional organization in which women of all races, languages, ethnicities, cultural background, physical disability, sexual orientation, and religion are welcome.
We are committed to creating lasting change in our communities through focused philanthropy.
