Women At Work

 

There still remains an inherent stigma across the world about women being productive and successful in their careers outside the home.  On the one hand, we have lived in a patriarchal framework for thousands of years, and so the notion that women can function within a man's working world, and be proficient and prolific, is seen as a stretch.  Let a man be a man and a woman be a woman, some people would say.

But then there are the facts of what is happening to the American workforce: women compose almost 47% of the workforce and women own over 10 million businesses. According to the Global Entrepreneurship and Development Institute’s Female Entrepreneurship Index, the U.S. scores highest for development of "high potential female entrepreneurship," followed by Australia and the U.K.

So perhaps the paradigm is shifting, which is a uncertainty throughout human history.  Women have a lot to add to the fold, and they are ready and willing to provide solutions and economic opportunity to a variety of areas of industry.  As a nation, our economy deserves and needs this fresh perspective.

On July 26th, that's what we discussed in more detail at the Women At Work event, curated by SALLY, an organization devoted to empowering women.  What is it like to be a working woman in present times?  And how do we overcome prejudice in the workplace so that women can focus on doing what they do best: their job?

In collaboration with women-owned Boxcarr Handmade Cheese, Cheese Grotto sponsored and assembled the cheese boards for this special gathering.

Shipping Details

Hardware

If you have purchased cheese hardware from our Grotto collection, it usually takes us 1 to 3 business days to ship your order, unless otherwise listed on the respective product page.

Cheese Orders

As the cheeses are a fresh product, we want to ensure the quickest transit time as possible, so your order arrives in the best possible condition.  Express shipping costs range from $25 - $55 depending on the package size, delivery window, location and carrier. We ship Mondays only each week, and orders must be placed by Thursday the week prior to be included in Monday's shipments.  If you purchased a cheese subscription with a set shipping schedule (Meet the Makers or any Gift Subscription), please refer to the respective product page for the fixed shipping schedule.

Please note: cheese ships from our cheese warehouse and hardware ships from our hardware warehouse. If you are purchasing both hardware and cheese, there will be a shipping charge for the cheese portion of your order.

International Orders

We are sorry, but we aren't legally allowed to ship cheese across the US border!  We can, however, ship our hardware from our Grotto collection worldwide.  Please note that the shipping costs options you see at checkout do not include customs, duties, and taxes which will be billed to you upon reaching the border, and will be an additional expense.  Those costs vary from country to country, but we recommend calculating at an additional 20% charge. If you refuse the package due to these additional fees and the hardware is returned to us, we will be able to issue a refund minus the outbound and return shipping costs.
