In June the CCBA will release an industry-wide employee survey to help us understand the state of diversity, inclusivity and equity in craft beer. The survey will be anonymous, and results will guide us in developing education and resources for member breweries. The survey is the first step in a comprehensive DEI program being developed by the CCBA in cooperation with subject matter experts in Canada and the U.S.

“The best way to solve a problem is to first understand exactly what it looks like,” said Steve Beauchesne, Chair of the Anti-Discrimination and Inclusion Committee of the CCBA. “The survey is designed to develop a baseline of understanding that will inform our committee’s future actions”.

 To help launch the survey, the CCBA will host an educational webinar for member breweries in early June. Further details to follow.
