Diageo Brand Director joins women in whisky panel

 December 03, 2020

Diageo's Johnnie Walker Global Brand Director Julie Bramham joined a 'women in whisky' panel to discuss perceptions of inclusion, representation and the future of women in the whisky industry. 

Joining an all-female panel 

The 90-minute session panel was hosted by Diageo partner Distill Ventures, the world's first independent drinks accelerator, and moderated by whisky expert, media personality and journalist Becky Paskin.

Julie's fellow panelists included distillery founders and managers, and head distillers from global locations including the USA, Tasmania and Hong Kong.

Discussing diversity in the drinks business 

As well as a Q&A, Julie and the panelists discussed insightful topics that included how to create inclusive teams and spaces within drinks businesses; how to empower new leaders in an industry that has traditionally lacked diversity; and advice for the next generation of female distillers, brand ambassadors and whisky specialists.

Supporting today's best entrepreneurs

As Distill Ventures' partner and sole investor, Diageo enables the growth of up-and-coming businesses through technical know-how, production support, and marketing expertise.

“Diageo is built on the shoulders of entrepreneurs like Arthur Guinness, Pierre Smirnoff, the Walkers, James Buchanan, Charles Tanqueray and many more," says Ivan Menezes, CEO of Diageo.

"Innovation is core to our business and through Distill Ventures, we are able to complement our work and support today’s best entrepreneurs to create the great global brands of the future."
