Strength Through Diversity

At The Palm Restaurant, one of the most important things we celebrate is the diversity of The Palm family. As a company, we are committed to promoting gender and ethnic diversity among our employees as well as among our vendors and guests.

The Palm is affiliated with the Women’s Foodservice Forum  as an active participant of the Forum’s annual conference and having several women directors volunteer on WFF committees throughout the year. 

The Palm is also a sponsor of the Multicultural Food Service and Hospitality Alliance (MFHA) working to identify and develop multicultural management talent within our restaurants. Gerry Fernandez, president and founder of MFHA, has also been a guest speaker at The Palm’s annual management meeting.  Betsy Mercado, Vice President of Human Resources at The Palm, also serves on the Board of Directors for MFHA and is an active support of the organization throughout the year.
