Recognising the need for a more diverse and inclusive brewing sector
The brewing sector recognises it can continue to grow more diverse and inclusive. Everyone must have the opportunity to be part of our sector, whatever their personal characteristics or social identities, their race and ethnicity, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, abilities, socioeconomic status, religion or other background.
The brewing sector wants to become an inclusive sector where everyone – its companies, trade associations, employees and value chain partners – feels welcome and able to join the strategic ambitions of the sector with regard to diversity and inclusion.
The brewing sector acknowledges many actors have already taken actions to address the issue, some by identifying, designing and executing Inclusion & Diversity strategies …, others by joining existing schemes. Any additional step should build upon and integrate existing efforts.
