I’m lucky enough to work in an industry where women know their place and are thankful for all the opportunities afforded to them by the handsy dudes on the top floor.
I am fortunate enough to work for a company who respects and supports women in the work place. You guys, we have one lady SVP and two ancient biddies on the board!
As a treat the women in my company were invited to a luncheon where we were treated to tales of success from octogenarians (hint: nepotism and free and easy access to the bits while you’re still tight).
The real star of the show was the spread. I know that when planning events for women food can be a touchy subject (and not just because millennial are allergic to everything) and as times change cucumber sandwiches have fallen out of style so what are you supposed to serve to a bunch of women starving for success?
As a working woman I often crowdsource ideas for more socially obvious decisions (I’m a woman, how can I know my own mind?) so I want to share this spectacular luncheon menu with you. You may use it in part or in whole.
