Stop “Doing Diversity!” Build an Inclusive, Equitable, and Just Workplace that Drives Success
Speaker: Dr. J Nikol Jackson-Beckham, Brewers Association
Does your brewery staff and leadership reflect the diversity of your community? If not, you’re not alone. You’re also leaving a world of opportunity for organizational success unexplored. In this interactive talk, Dr. J. will share some of the latest research on the advantages that organizations that lead in workplace diversity experience. Though there are no one-size-fits-all tactics that are appropriate for all breweries, this talk will cover a range of practical recruitment and retention strategies that will help attendees working to diversify their workplace.
Sustaining Growth with Strong Financial Planning
Speaker: Chris Sarette, CFO, Modern Times Beer
At Summit ‘18, Modern Times tackled how to plan your finances in the early days of a brewery’s life. This included start-up capital, addressing cost of goods, how to price your product and some early lessons learned with traditional bank lenders. During this year’s seminar, we’ll turn our attention to Modern Times’ experience after the first three years of start-up and growth, and the variety of opportunities out there for cash flowing a brewery that is facing a crossroads on how to finance and manage growth from a microbrewery to a regional brewery.
