The Inclusion Beer Project is a collaborative Diversity, Equity & Inclusion initiative to bring about change in the brewing industry by creating a new and much needed culture of inclusion, starting with a commitment to form a DE&I committee.
The hope is breweries, guilds and associations around the world will adopt a structure for having the hard conversations, and for turning those discussions into meaningful change.
Make a commitment, set tangible goals, and use The Inclusion Beer Project as inspiration and a vehicle for public proclamation.
Get a step-by-step guide and resources for starting a DE&I program and bonus "This Is a Safe Space" poster for your taproom.
Stating intentions is a powerful motivator for enacting change -- use an Inclusion beer release to challenge your organization and set a goal.
Sign up for label designs and promotional assets, and use whenever your brewery is ready to affirm a commitment to DE&I through an official Inclusion release.
