BevNET and NOSH’s weekly live call-in show, Office Hours, returns Tuesday, July 14 at 3 p.m. ET. BevNET managing editor Martin Caballero will be joined by Alisa Williams, Partner at VMG, and Matt Thomas, founder and CEO of Brew Dr. Kombucha, for a discussion exploring the roles that CPG entrepreneurs and brand leaders can play in supporting a more diverse, equitable and inclusive industry.
In addressing this complex challenge, the two guests will provide insight from both an investor and CEO’s perspective. They’ll tackle questions about effective outreach to minority communities, how to create pathways for those employees to progress once hired, and how creating a diverse and inclusive company can have a direct impact on the bottom line. In the face of a renewed sense of urgency to take action, they’ll talk about what the achievable goals are and how companies can measure their progress towards them, with an eye towards driving long-term success through incremental victories, as well as how the public momentum around these issues can be sustained to create lasting positive change within the industry.
