Do you have a ground-breaking idea on how to build a better, more equitable restaurant industry? A first-of-its-kind initiative, the Solution Sprint is a one-day, crowdsourced event designed to drive resources, expertise, and attention to solving community-identified challenges in the restaurant and hospitality industry. Inspired by the collective problem solving in the tech and design fields, the Solution Sprint uses a hackathon approach. Teams will be developed in advance, and each team will work on a pre-selected project. The Solution Sprint is the first initiative from Women in Hospitality United (@womeninhospitalityunited), born of the #MeToo movement and the belief that there is an urgent need for evolution in the hospitality industry. WiHU co-founder Elizabeth Meltz (@elizabethmeltz), joins us in-studio to talk about the state-of-the-industry and the WiHU Solution Sprint. For more information, visit WomenInHospilalityUnited.org. Application deadline is August 24th, and selected projects will be announced on September 10th. This episode is sponsored by Southern Farm & Garden (@southernfarmandgarden).
