Women’s Foodservice Forum (WFF) will award a new scholarship next year, thanks to a generous gift from WFF partner organization H.J. Heinz Company. The $5,000 scholarship will be given to an emerging leader candidate, so that she or he may be able to attend WFF’s 25th Annual Leadership Development Conference.

“The WFF Leadership Development Conference offers unparalleled opportunities for education, networking and professional development,” says WFF president and CEO Fritzi Woods. “We are thrilled to offer this opportunity to someone who otherwise might not have been able to attend and participate in the event.”

By offering the award to a deserving candidate this year, Heinz is taking a proactive approach to women’s leadership development. The scholarship demonstrates the company’s commitment to and support of WFF’s mission and goals.

The WFF 25th Annual Leadership Development Conference will take place in Dallas March 23–26, 2014.
