Legacy Awards Deadline Extended

We have extended the deadline for LDEI Legacy Award applicants to Monday, May 1. Please reach out to your networks today, spread the word, and encourage qualified women to apply.

Thanks to the generosity of The Julia Child Foundation, our Dame Mentor-Hosts and their Chapters, we have SIX fabulous weeklong Legacy experiences to give away. These awards are high-energy, labor-intensive and career-expanding opportunities for early to mid-career women. The award winners will also be our guests at the 2017 LDEI Annual Conference in Newport Beach, California, Oct. 26–29, 2017 where their educational and networking opportunities will continue!

The six awards include the chance to: work at the Jose Cuervo Tequila Distillery and Mundo Cuervo, assist at the historic James Beard House in New York City, explore winemaking at Wente Family Estates in California, learn all the facets of Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery in Seattle, experience what it takes to produce award-winning cheese at Shy Brothers Farm, and partake in a farm-to-sea-to-table tour in New England.

The Legacy Awards are for non-Dame women with 4+ years of experience from the US, Britain, Canada and Mexico. Successful applicants are passionate, skilled and eager to grow and develop in their careers. In short, they are tomorrow’s leaders.

For details of each award and the application, send contacts to LDEI LEGACY AWARDS or have them visit http://www.ldei.org/, click on Awards, then Legacy Awards.

Please share on all your social media platforms.

The woman you encourage to apply could be on her way to an inspiring week in Mexico, New York City, the Livermore Valley, Seattle, coastal Massachusetts, or New England!

Our sincerest thanks!
