​​​Approved October 18, 2021

The Master Brewers Association of the Americas is committed to providing a welcoming environment free from discrimination and from all types of offensive, harassing, or abusive behavior, whether at district or association-wide gatherings, face-to-face or online. The success of the Master Brewers is dependent on the trust and confidence we earn from our members, prospective members, customers, and supporting organizations. We gain authenticity, credibility, and voice by adhering to our commitments, displaying honesty and integrity, and reaching our goals solely through honorable conduct.

The Master Brewers actively strives to expand diversity, equity and inclusivity within our membership and our leadership, at both national and district levels. We strive to augment opportunities for members to grow their knowledge for contributing to a more diverse, equitable and inclusive industry. We expect Master Brewers members to lead by example and civility in all places, public and professional.

Master Brewers engages in ongoing efforts across the organization to achieve and to hold ourselves accountable to our ideals as a diverse set of brewers and brewing industry professionals who collectively and individually contribute valuable thoughts, practices, and perspectives. We look forward to sharing new opportunities, materials and recommendations for fostering and embedding greater justice, equality, diversity and inclusion into the framework of the Master Brewers.
