San Francisco, Calif. April 2, 2021 – Be the Change Job Fair, an initiative led by Cara Bertone, Philana Bouvier, Lia Jones, and Rania Zayyat, in partnership with Diversity in Food & Beverage and Lift Collective announced today that registration for candidates is now open for the second virtual job fair on April 22, 2021. Following the success of the first job fair in December 2020 for the Wine industry, the 2021 Be the Change Job Fair adds exhibitors such as Boston Beer Company, Bacardi USA, and more from the Beer and Spirits industries to the list of exhibitors.
Be the Change is the first initiative of its kind, dedicated exclusively to creating more diverse and equitable workplaces in the beverage alcohol industry.

The four-hour event will host employers who are committed to DEI with space for up to 1,000 jobseekers and multiple job opportunities across the beverage industry. “We are excited to expand our initiative this year to include the spirits and beer industries,” comments co-founder of Be the Change and President, Demeine Estates, Philana Bouvier. “We remain committed to creating sustainable change by facilitating job placements with the beverage alcohol industry’s leading companies.”
