NAGBW – Reckoning

Next up in “News from the NAGBW” are my notes from last nights talk on whether or not a reckoning can become a revolution as the industry confronts sexism.

Here are some takeaways from the discussion with host Jessica Infante and panelists Beth Demmon, Jess Bautista and Paige Latham Didora.

  • hard to rehash these atrocious stories
  • workers are at a disadvantage bur female workers are often more so
  • career development is stunted
  • toxic gratitude where you have to be happy despite the bad environment
  • even job descriptions raise red flags
  • maybe reporting incidents to the local brewers guild could help
  • change the imperative from moral to either financial or legal
