The Culinary Sisterhood Fighting for Women in the Restaurant Industry

What happens when women restaurateurs band together for a unified goal? The answer is exemplified in Regarding Her, a remarkable non-profit organization that emerged in response to the significant challenges faced by women in the restaurant industry.

Family-run, women-led, and BIPOC-owned restaurants endured profound hardships during the pandemic.

Amid these trials, RE:Her emerged as a shining beacon, offering vital lifelines such as small business grants, mentorship, and survival tools.
