New Job Fair Helps Vegan Brands Make Their Work Forces More Inclusive

On February 24, media and events organization Vegan Women Summit (VWS) will host the world’s first virtual job-networking event dedicated to vegan employers from around the world. Part of the VWS Connect event series, the first job fair will feature leading vegan brands, startups, and nonprofits, such as vegan cheese brand Miyoko’s Creamery, vegan chicken creator Rebellyous Foods, cultured meat manufacturer SuperMeat, and nonprofit organization ProVegan. All participating companies have job openings ranging from executive to entry-level roles in all departments, including marketing, engineering, science, and advocacy.

Building a diverse workforce

“We are trailblazing a path forward for a more inclusive and equitable future of food. It’s no secret that women, specifically women of color, continue to be significantly underrepresented in this emerging industry,” VWS founder Jennifer Stojkovic said. “While our work has only just begun, VWS is dedicated to creating access to these high-quality, mission-driven jobs for all—and we’re proud to partner with so many employers from around the world to build this diverse and inclusive workforce.” 

The VWS Connect series is free to attend but registration is required.

Last year, VWS hosted a Vegan Women Summit that brought together Black vegan activists to discuss the intersection of veganism and race, and a women founder summit and pitch competition dedicated to plant-based innovation.
