Please note: this program is for young professionals from Greater Boston and who are between the ages of 21 and 39.
At City Awake, we make it our mission to connect Greater Boston's young professionals with leaders in the community. Our Lunches on Leadership are casual conversations with rising leaders who are making their mark on the region and show promise to create impact for years to come.
Next up is Irene Li, Chef and Co-founder of Mei Mei Restaurant & Street Kitchen. Together with her siblings, Irene has grown Mei Mei to be a leader in ethical sourcing and fair employment practices within the restaurant industry. Irene has also been recognized as one of the nation's up and coming chefs - she's an Eater Young Gun winner and three-time James Beard Foundation Rising Star Chef semi-finalist.
Join us to hear Irene's steps to success and her plans for the future, and enjoy Mei Mei's award-winning cuisine. We'll have lunch catered by the restaurant!
