The Executive Leadership Program, run by the Women's Foodservice Forum (WFF) in partnership with Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, has opened enrollment for the November event.

The program includes four sessions to be completed over 24 months. The recommended first session is at the Kellogg Campus in Chicago, Nov. 7-8. Courses are taught by Northwestern University faculty and are tailored specifically for the foodservice industry.

The lead instructor for the November session is Victoria Medvec, professor of Management & Organizations, and executive director of the Center for Executive Women at the Kellogg School of Management. Content covered includes strategic thinking, team building, crisis management and decision making for executives. More information about the program and registration can be found online.

Foodservice organizations that have, or are currently, participating in the program include PepsiCo, ARAMARK, The Coca-Cola Company, Dominos, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Sodexo, SYSCO, Ventura Foods and more.

"PepsiCo is proud to be a part of such a special program, helping to train, educate and advance women to the highest ranks within the foodservice business," said Tom Bene, president of PepsiCo North America. "Partnerships like this ensure that the next generation of leaders is ready for the challenges that the future will bring."

Also this week, ARAMARK announced that it has joined the WFF's top tier of partnership as a "Catalyst."

"Our move to become a Catalyst with Women's Foodservice Forum is an extension of our core beliefs as a company," said Gary Crompton, president, Business Dining of ARAMARK. "Diverse leadership teams lead to stronger companies and more engaged employees. WFF is the leading organization in advocating for gender parity and developing diversity in the workplace, and we are pleased to partner with them."
