Sustainability & The Environment Seminar
Led by Claire Sprouse
Sponsored by Sacred Bond Bottled-in-Bond Brandy & Rittenhouse Rye
Sustainability depends on both small and big picture thinking. We can all make choices and engineer change from how we approach building a cocktail to creating community-wide advocacy. In this seminar, Claire Sprouse laid down a foundation for understanding the pillars of environmental action: from food waste to water conservation to reducing your carbon footprint.
Education & Mentorship Seminar
Led by Jeffrey Morgenthaler and Joaquín Simó
Sponsored by Elijah Craig & Domaine de Canton
Whether you are a leader, a team member, a neighbor, or a friend, the opportunities to teach and to learn are everywhere. To most effectively build your own knowledge and the knowledge of those around you, you must learn methods for listening as well as for teaching. Drawing on their history as authors and leaders, Jeffrey Morgenthaler and Joaquín Simó explored how to distill and share information, and how teams grow through communication.
Equity & Diversity Seminar
Led by Jackie Summers
Sponsored By PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur & Lunazul Tequila
Too often the conversation about diversity has been focused solely on issues of black and white, to the exclusion of the disabled, the Asian community, the Latin community, the LGBTQ+ community, and other underserved communities. Jackie Summers led a panel discussion about the need to continue to expand our concepts of inclusion, making sure no one is left out.
