What Does Courage Look Like

Trish Nelson is a comedian, actor, and producer with more than 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry. As the founder of Bantergirl, she helps women create films, television, podcasts, and other projects that give voice to their experiences.

At the sixth MAD Symposium, Nelson holds a microscope over restaurant culture, exposing its destructive practices and the damage they have caused both to her personally, and to our community as a whole. Raw and powerful, her talk is a call to action, urging us to recreate our culture and our workplaces so that they are equal, safe, and just for all.
