"The Women in Worldchefs initiative  strives to increase visibility of women chefs worldwide as well as supporting them in their efforts to advance their careers while balancing work and family. Women in Worldchefs also seeks to establish a national and international network whose purpose is to mentor, recruit, and retain female membership in Chefs associations. The idea of the Women in Worldchefs initiative consisting in encouraging women to be active within the framework of the Worldchefs: promote their careers, assistance at various stages  of their careers, especially in education and exchange of the experience, internships, job-search assistance, making joint efforts to integrate and establish contacts,  to realize common the international projects, endorse and assistance to the extent of their culinary events, competitions and other. We want to make the women feel a part of the Worldchefs, because the Association is not only for men!

Women in Worldchefs initiative was created by Susanne Metz at the 34th Worldchefs Congress in Dubai in 2008.
