INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
Interview with Head Chef Kelley Adamo

International Women’s Day is dedicated to women around the world and is a celebration of the great success of women along with remembering the voices of many women that go unheard and who continue to be dominated from securing their rights and realising their full potential.

The objective of Women’s Day is to express love and gratitude towards women’s’ contribution to our lives and society. It honours the power and struggles of women who have broken all barriers and reached the pinnacle of success in every sphere of life.

As part of the EMC Group Geelong, Denny’s Kitchen proudly boasts a workforce with 60% of the supervisory and management roles held by women, ten years ago – this was only 10%!
We love to celebrate International Women’s Day each year across our venues. We recently chatted with Head Chef Kelley Adamo – whom is at the helm of Denny’s Kitchen. We asked Kelley about her thoughts on International Women’s Day.

What does International Woman’s Day mean to you?
Its the celebration of the achievements and advances of all women across the world.

Can you name a women in your work place that has been a mentor or inspiration? why?
Sonya, our Financial Controller at EMC Group – she is always supportive and helpful with teaching me how to do my job better, she helps me fix problems and teaches me how to look for them myself!

If you could have dinner with any woman – living or passed, real or fictional, who would it be and why?
Michelle Obama – I would want to find out if she is like what they say in person!

What do you think is the most pressing issue for women in 2019?
Pay gap and 100% equality for women.
