Educational Workshops

The objective of these sessions is to get into smaller markets and work with those women+ who are looking for more knowledge and guidance. We aim to enhance the skills of bartenders in communication, empowerment and confidence with words from the ACP team while working with others from The Ada Coleman Project database to offer training on bespoke topics. Some of the subjects covered will include Communication Skills, Customer Engagement, Sustainability, Confidence Building, Empowerment and Building Your Personal Brand.

Hospitality Industry Speed Networking Events

Speed Networking

This ground-breaking opportunity will see 9-12 industry leaders together in one room sharing their knowledge and insight, giving one-on-one time to aspiring women+, in a series of 7-minute segments. In order to have as many participants as possible, each guest will speak with 3 mentors so we are able to serve 36 people in a 90-minute session. Each session will be broken up into 3 mini sessions of 30 minutes. The event’s fast-paced nature encourages participants to refine their communication skills, articulate their professional goals succinctly, and make memorable impressions. As a result, attendees can quickly identify potential mentors, collaborators, or future colleagues who align with their career aspirations.

Networking Lounge

A dedicated space, provided to unlock opportunities for connection and collaboration, designed to empower women+ in the hospitality industry, by encouraging meaningful relationships and professional growth. Attendee’s will be able to learn more about The Ada Coleman Project, network with industry professionals, exchange ideas, and create connections to drive positive change and effectively become a part of community dedicated to advancing women’s presence and influence in hospitality.
