Career Conversations with Food Systems Professionals

Alumni House, Toll Room Berkeley

What does it take to create a values-based supply chain? Who are the workers and other stakeholders that make this supply chain operate? What does providing technical assistance to farmers and ranchers and other food businesses look like? Berkeley Food Institute will address these questions and more at our annual career fair titled Cultivating Values-Based Relationships: Career Conversations with Food System Professionals. This year will center careers in values-based supply chains and technical assistance for farmers and food businesses. We invite students at any point in their academic journey to learn about career pathways that center their values and forge meaningful relationships with the people who help feed our communities. We have invited employers ranging from technical assistance providers to farmers and small businesses, food producers and manufacturers, manufacturers, and distributors, to name a few, all working toward a food system that prioritizes justice, equity, and responsible land stewardship.
