Master Brewers Webinar: ​
Inclusive Hiring and Retention​​​

Webinar Summary

In order to build a strong team and a welcoming workplace, you need the right team - but how do you determine who those people are, and how do you help them find your brewery? Racial justice professional Ren Navarro will dig into the details of hiring and retention and answer your questions about how DEI concepts can (and should) impact your hiring processes. She will also discuss compensation structures, workplace diversity committees, and some of the common and easily avoidable mistakes that a manager might make with hiring new staff, choosing vendors, or redesigning your space. By the end of the hour, you’ll be ready to start your next round of hiring with a refreshed perspective!
