Powerhouse Communications, an award-winning public relations agency specializing in brand storytelling, media relations and influencer programs, has been tapped by the Females in Food Community (Females in Food or FIF) to lead its U.S. media relations efforts. Founded in 2019, Females in Food is committed to advancing women in the food and beverage industry through providing career resources and job opportunities, while also working with companies who understand that the industry becomes more sustainable and profitable when women are represented at the top of businesses that celebrate them.
A female-led agency with deep experience in the hospitality space, Powerhouse Communications will build awareness of Females in Food as the leading career resource platform for women seeking advancement in the food and beverage industry, as well as food and beverage companies looking to attract highly qualified female candidates. The agency will showcase FIF’s 360-approach and its impactful tools that make it the most effective resource for women seeking leadership roles with companies that prioritize the needs of females and working mothers today.
“From my earliest conversations with Powerhouse, it was evident the team really understood our mission and feel as passionate as we do about shining the light on gender disparities within the booming food and beverage industry,” said Angela Dodd, founder of the Females in Food Community. “Powerhouse’s creative approach to PR and storytelling, coupled with their extensive knowledge of foodservice and food-adjacent industries, such as consumer packaged goods, make me certain they’re the best agency partner to grow with Females in Food.”
As a professional and data driven platform, Females in Food offers highly vetted resources and skill-building programs to help women in food advance their careers beyond the very real glass ceiling. Along with being a robust resource for industry news, all members have the ability to discover career opportunities, attend educational and industry events, grow their individual network, receive free resume reviews, connect with certified career coaches, enroll in the FIF Job Search Accelerator and anonymously review their current or past employers on “female friendliness factors,” such as equal opportunities for women, female representation in leadership, and maternity and adoptive leave with the intent of using data to help women find and improve companies where they can achieve their goals.
“Both the food and beverage industry and cause-driven non-profit organizations have been integral to Powerhouse’s client roster since day one, so working with Females in Food will allow us to blend these two areas of expertise together in a way that plays to our strengths and passions as an agency,” said Kristin Daher, Founder and Chief Storyteller of Powerhouse Communications. “As a food-specialized PR agency, being a ‘female in food’ is part of my own and many Powerhouse team members’ identity; we’re proud to champion the Females in Food Community as we work collectively to spread awareness of its critical mission.”
