Association Grants Will Support Events Focused on Diversity and Inclusion

How one organization is giving a nod to industries that are doing diversity right

The Brewers Association (BA) is giving a nod—and a series of financial grants—to industry events that are doing diversity right.

BA recently announced a series of grants to festivals and employment programs that aim to promote diversity and inclusion in the craft beer community. Six events chosen out of 51 applicants will share a total of $20,000 in grants to support their work.

Two of the programs (in Pittsburgh and Richmond, Virginia) are craft beer festivals targeted at local black communities; one (in Denver) focuses on the local Latino community. The other three events seek to expand the diversity of the industry itself—two employment fairs in Cleveland and Boston and an event series in Brooklyn, New York, that aims to elevate women in the craft beer community.
