  3. Events that celebrate the diversity of the craft brewing community and increase the visibility of underrepresented groups and experiences.
  4. Events that increase the cultural competence and increase the adoption of diversity, equity, and inclusion best practices among members of the broader craft brewing community.
  5. Events that leverage the strengths of the craft brewing community to fight injustice, eliminate disparities, and provide solutions to an array of challenges that impact those who produce and enjoy craft beer.
