Inclusivity, Diversity and Equality Review

Inclusivity, Diversity and Equality Review

Contact: IDEreview@camra.org.uk 

Following discussion around tackling discrimination in the beer and pub industry CAMRA is launching an Inclusivity, Diversity and Equality Review Group to ensure members and non-members do not suffer discrimination and feel safe and welcome within the organisation and at its events. 

The Group will be tasked to look at CAMRA’s existing equality and diversity policies and processes to identify any gaps, weakness or improvements that can be made. The Group will also review the organisation’s Disciplinary processes and policies to ensure nothing is discouraging people from reporting discrimination, harassment or abuse – and that when it is reported, it is being dealt with appropriately. 

One of the first tasks of the Group will be to launch a Discovery process to invite members and non-members to share their experiences, so that the Group can assess the scale of the issue and where action can be taken. 

This will be an opportunity for everyone to take part in the Review – please watch this space for further updates.

Angela Aspin

A very active CAMRA member for 20 years in October 2021. I have spent hours sitting on a large number committees, even more hours working at beer festivals and have held various roles. As a former regional POTY Judge I like nothing better than a pint in one of the best pubs in the country and have visited every National POTY winner since the competitions inception. As a former CBOB Judge, beer quality at CAMRA beer festivals is of special interest to me and I have spent over 10 years honing my cooling and dispense skills. As a former RD working and communicating with others came naturally, so much so that I was overwhelmingly voted in for three, three year terms. This framework gives me a very broad perspective on the membership. What I want to focus on is the integration of all age groups.

Roy Denney

Roy joined CAMRA in its very early days and apart from a short gap when he moved house and job has been a member ever since. He is on the committees  and acts as editor for a number of sports organisations and is active in local government. He is currently Scrutiny Commissioner of his District Council and was until recently Chairman of the Licensing Committee.  A campaigner on environmental matters his hobbies include hill walking, travel especially in the UK, cooking and conversation. He likes to ‘collect’ pubs and has a comprehensive catalogue of the better ones he has found. Favourite pastime; putting the world to rights in a good pub, with good company,  quaffing real ale often with good pub grub.

Jess is former secretary for CAMRA’s Commercial and Communications committee. Outside of CAMRA, I work for a leading technology company who manages critical digital infrastructure, and I am a member their ED&I steering group. I work to help the company identify gaps in representation of protected groups, and solving these issues and blockers.  As a bid manager, I regularly review the company’s Social Value policies. In my previous company, I was chair of the BLM group, (which fed into the company’s wider D&I group). Having experienced discrimination, both in and out of the campaign, I welcome the opportunity to be part of this new group.
