Napa, CA – The Food Business School (FBS), the
center for executive education
of The Culinary Institute of
America (CIA), invites entrepreneurs, industry insiders, and
students in food studies to join FBS Dean Will Rosenzweig for a free
online conversation on Thursday, November 10, from 5–6 p.m. PST.
Naomi Starkman is a founder and the editor-in-chief of Civil Eats, a daily news source for
critical thought about the American food system, and the James Beard
Foundation’s 2014 Publication of the Year. In this interactive event, Starkman will share her thoughts on food policy and how
media can impact systemic change throughout the food system and raise consumer
consciousness. She will address the question of why there is the need for
informed independent reporting in food today.
