Working for a more inclusive beer industry.

Our Purpose

‘Work In Progress’ is an open, de-centralised group of breweries that aspire to a more inclusive and representative beer industry. We’re committed to taking action in our businesses and forging links with communities to increase opportunities and promote collaboration between brewers and under-represented groups in our society.

Our Structure

We are a non-profit, decentralised movement driven by our members. We’re establishing a steering committee of trusted industry and non-industry voices to help guide and unify our voices and actions to create greater inclusivity in the beer and wider drinks industry.

Our Areas of Progress

We believe opportunities for inclusion are varied and can be found everywhere, but our members commit to act on the following core areas of inclusion: - Anti-Racism and Black Asian and Minority Ethnic Representation - LGBT+ Representation - Female Representation - Disabled Persons Representation

Our Action and Accountability

We trust our members to develop their own unique approaches to inclusion, put them into action, and then report on them - sharing successes and failures with other members and the wider world. We don’t believe there is a right or wrong way to begin a Work In Progress journey. All we ask is that you hold yourself and others to account, and support other members on their own journeys.
