Joshna Maharaj

Putting Values to Work: Blending your personal and business values in a changing world

Many of us want our careers to align with our personal values. But it is sometimes difficult to see, how we can achieve this. It is not always clear, in other words, that we can make a living without "selling out". Joshna Maharaj is a chef who has made it her business to bring her convictions about what our relationship with food should be into different organizational settings. Speaking from her own expeirence she will lead a converation about how we can make our values count even in within the context of a field that is being dominated by an aggressively competitive industry.


Joshna Maharaj is a chef, a two-time TEDx speaker, & activist who wants to help everyone have a better relationship with their food. She believes strongly in the power of chefs & social gastronomy to bring values of hospitality, sustainability, & social justice to the table.

Recently, Joshna has been working with hospitals & universities in Toronto to build new models for institutional food procurement, production and service. She is currently writing a book entitled Take Back the Tray to capture the lessons and experience and create a shareable blueprint for changing institutional food systems around the globe.

Joshna is a regular guest on CBC Radio, a passionate public speaker, and she co-hosts a food podcast called the Hot Plate. She was on the shortlist for the inaugural Basque Culinary World Prize in 2016, and received Restaurants Canada’s award of Culinary Excellence in 2018.

Take Back the Trayis a movement to reconnect food with health, wellness, education, and rehabilitation in public institutions around the globe. And it's a story about how a chef took on the institution and tried to make change.
