Recent posts on social media have brought to light hundreds of firsthand accounts of sexist, misogynist behavior towards women working in the craft beer industry. We, at Diablo Order of Zymiracle Enthusiasts (DOZE), condemn this type of behavior and will not tolerate it in our club. We welcome and celebrate women in all levels of homebrewing and the craft beer industry.
DOZE’s mission is to promote and enjoy the hobby of home brewing. Regarding our membership practices, our bylaws state we shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status. We want to go beyond non-discrimination.
We strive to create and maintain an inclusive environment for everyone—members, guests, speakers, and all others. We strive to create and maintain an environment where everyone’s voice is heard and, most importantly, respected.
