To live our value of respect, educate ourselves more fully on what it means to be anti-racist, identify and eliminate barriers to inclusion, and continually create an environment where all employees can bring their best selves to work, the Executive Leadership Team developed commitments to be better, to do better.
In 2019, Brown-Forman developed and shared internally Many Spirits, One Brown-Forman: Gender and Race Edition, our ten-year diversity and inclusion strategy. By better understanding the environment in which we work, and our positioning within it, we can ensure that we have initiatives in place to realize the true value of diversity and inclusion for our people, our brands, our business, and our global community.
The strategy, which is now required reading for all employees around the world, established quantitative ambitions for representation of women and people of color. We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to read the strategy in its entirety — we believe you too will see the potential that can exist when many spirits come together for one Brown-Forman.
We are encouraged by today’s agreement between the U.S. and the EU to avoid the doubling of tariffs on American whiskey. We applaud the Biden Administration and its EU counterparts for this positive step forward. However, American whiskey still remains subject to 25% retaliatory tariffs in the EU and UK. We remain hopeful that the negotiators will build on the progress that’s been made and ultimately secure a removal of tariffs on American whiskey.
