About FEW Kansai

FEW was established to support foreign women in Japan, both professionally and socially. Being literally “few” in the world, FEW offers a friendly and supportive atmosphere to meet, network and find like-minded friends. From this idea stems our mission: “To provide a forum for networking, career development, knowledge and information exchange, support and friendship among foreign women living in Kansai."

                                 FEW February 2019 Meeting

                                  What's Cooking at Google?
                                                      
    with

       Malcolm Omond
          Director, Food Services, APAC & EMEA, Google

    Google believes that a key to employee health is easy access to "good food." How many of us just grab a candy bar when we need an afternoon pick-me-up? Google's Food Services team makes sure that employees around the globe not only have access to nutritious eats, but also provide cooking programs and support farm-to-table initiatives that support a more healthy lifestyle. Google's food services director Malcolm Omond will talk about the role of his team in providing over 100,000 meals/day at over 170 Google cafes globally, including company initiatives around sustainability and how Food Services engages with diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
