Pour it Forward to Support Diversity in Brewing

Beer is one of the world's most historic and dynamic cultural traditions, and here in the United States, craft beer brewing has grown from a fringe hobby to becoming a dominant force in the alcohol beverage industry.

For as much success as the industry has seen, however, one critical area where it needs to grow is diversity, equity and inclusion.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

At UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education, we strive to create a diverse community comprised of individuals with many perspectives and identities. We recognize that to create an inclusive and intellectually vibrant learning environment, we must understand and value both our individual differences and our common ground. We follow the UC Davis Principles of Community, which embodies this commitment and reflects the ideals we seek to uphold. We pledge to recognize and support diversity and equal opportunity in our education, service and administrative activity. 

Expanding Career Options for Underserved Communities

Sacramento Employment and Training Agency and UC Davis sign career pathway training agreement. Starting this February, economically disadvantaged Sacramento residents will be able to access scholarship-funded career training. The agreement focuses on teaching high-demand job skills in Business, Health Sciences, Technology, Sustainability and other fields that support the evolving needs of the region’s employers.
