The agency will showcase FIF’s 360-degree approach and the impactful tools that make it an 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 feels 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.”

“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.
