A Modest Proposal: Let's Stop Talking About "Diversity"
No. We Can't All Just Get Along: The Necessity of Hard Conversations
Conflict is a normal part of healthy human relationships. The trick is to engage in productive conflict--when individuals with differing ideas, motives, or perceptions can communicate in ways that make them feel heard, respected, and unafraid of reprisal or abuse in the pursuit mutually satisfying resolutions. Productive conflicts can be particularly elusive when questions of cultural difference arise.
Fans, Hands & Brands: Strategies and Tactics for Being Inclusive and Building Diversity in Craft Beer
What do a black belt in Jiu Jitsu, a colony of ants, and a recipe for a brown ale have in common? In the real world, very little. But in Dr. J.’s talk, this eclectic list of common objects will inspire attendees to rethink how we approach diversity and inclusion in the craft beer industry. In this interactive talk, Dr. J. will open the door for an honest and judgement-free conversion about the realities of authentically reaching populations that are underrepresented among beers drinkers and brewery employees.
Thank you for the wonderful presentation! I’m grateful that I got to see you speak today. Your insight, knowledge, and humor were so appreciated. You rule!— Marissa DeFavourite (@marissadesantis) January 11, 2019
Incredible talk by @jnikolbeckham at #CBC2019 this afternoon.— Paul Jones (@CloudwaterPaul) April 9, 2019
Challenging yet practical, it’s left me feeling sad I’m only just getting started tackling some inclusion issues, but also positive because of the direction and opportunity to make beer better for so many more people.
Really glad you're doing this work, Dr. J! Saw you speak at CBC and could not have been more impressed with the skill you bring to it.— Jake Titus (@JakeTitus) September 3, 2018

I’ll say this in public for everyone’s benefit. @jnikolbeckham is my idol and I love that her work and her poise, her passion and her commitment, her honesty and her love is what beer will become.
