At Les Dames d’Escoffier International (“LDEI”), one of our guiding principles is valuing the differences among people and cultures throughout the world, in our communities and in our Chapters. We believe that the diversity of LDEI is a fundamental strength of our organization and that LDEI’s mission is best fulfilled when we embrace diversity as a value and a practice.
At LDEI we seek to build a community of women whose members and partners have diverse cultures, backgrounds and life experiences because we believe that diverse backgrounds and ideas are crucial to learning and excellence. In building a diverse and inclusive community, we welcome members and people of all races, language, ethnicity, cultural background, disability, sexual orientation and religion. We understand that people from different cultures and backgrounds provide unique perspectives and approaches.
Leading by example, we aspire to make diversity a core and abiding strength in our organization.
