BCAGlobal (www.Bcaglobal.org) is currently seeking individuals to serve as a candidate for Board of Director to support the rapid growth of the organization. Our focus over the last few years has been developing tools and resources for culinary and hospitality professionals of color. We realize the first step is to have engaged individuals that believe in the importance of diversity despite their own cultural background. We are seeking persons knowledgeable about "branding and fundraising" and play a role-providing guidance for the National development of the organization.
BCAGlobal (formally Black Culinarian Alliance), a non-profit empowering people of color across diverse cultures through education, training and mentoring in the culinary and hospitality industry. This industry is vast and yet barriers to achieve and advance remain for aspiring food professionals of color. For nearly a quarter century, BCA Global has been a critical resource for overcoming these barriers and increasing individual opportunities while furthering diversity within the industry.
BCA Global was established in 1993 by three graduates of the Culinary Institute of America as an alumni chapter, which grew to become an influential and effective non-profit resource for the industry. Now, the mission and approach of BCA Global has expanded to embrace the entire spectrum of people of color and ethnicities who are inspired and compelled to explore gastronomy across cultures.
Mindfulness for the Beloved Community (belovedmindfuleating.net) defines the BCA approach, a new paradigm within which eating is an expression of identity and a path to self-actualization that has the power to reconnect family, community, culture, faith and well-being though food. This paradigm provides a foundation and framework for BCA to bring together aspiring culinary professionals, food system and nutritional experts, and communities to collaborate on transformational projects, such as urban agriculture and community gardens.
As a longtime change agent within the industry, I have personally experienced both the critical role of education and mentoring to improve careers, as well as the power of working within a mindfulness framework. I am convinced that BCA Global has the vision, drive and commitment to make a significant contribution to the lives of individuals and furtherance of a beloved community.
It is my sincere wish that you will choose to join our mission, leverage your talents and expertise, and serve as a partner to fellow board members during this exciting phase in BCA’s growth. Together in unity, we will impact the future of diversity within the food space and communities of color.
