A demonstrable dedication to racial and gender justice, community, sustainability, and a culture where everyone can thrive is also recognised, as is extraordinary talent in the culinary arts, hospitality, media, and wider food system.

After the 2020 disaster, the foundation cancelled the 2023 James Beard Restaurant and Chef Awards. This was after the final vote had taken place. Due to concerns about diversity and allegations of abuse against several candidates, a new voting mechanism was implemented last year.

The award methodology was revised following an internal audit to recognise not only culinary quality but also equity, leadership, sustainability, and community building. (As per The New York Times)
