Women of the Vine: Empowering Women in the Alcohol Industry
September 30, 2015
Our friend Deborah Brenner recently launched the Women of the Vine Alliance with top beverage industry executives. Their mission is to empower and equip women worldwide to advance their careers in the alcohol beverage industry. Deborah is best known as the author of Women of the Vine: Inside the World of Women Who Make, Taste, and Enjoy Wine, and as founder of the influential Women of the Vine Global Symposium.
The new Alliance will be anchored by the Symposium and work to bring attention to the issues women face in the alcohol beverage industry by offering educational opportunities, mentoring, networking events and more. The seeds of the Alliance were sown while Deborah was doing research for her bestselling book. As a 20-year veteran of the TV and film industries, she was familiar with the disenchantment of working in a male-dominated industry. As she interviewed women in the wine world for the book, her commitment to telling their stories galvanized the group as a force whose talents and collective experience could not be ignored.
