The Equal Measures Project (UK)
Equal Measures is a project focusing on delivering greater equity in the UK drinks industry. Participants from marginalised groups will be given the opportunity to bolster their CV by studying for the WSET Level 2 Award in Spirits. High-performing participants will also be offered the opportunity to study for the WSET Level 3 Award in Spirits. WSET courses will be delivered by WSET Approved Programme Provider, The Mixing Class.
Further opportunities such as Personal Licence courses will also be made available to every participant. Upon successful application the participant will be twinned with a leading industry figure, who will take a vested interest in their professional development, and offer mentorship for a minimum of three months.
Support via Equal Measures is available to those in the UK from Black, Asian, and other minority ethnicities, but also for those from other marginalised groups, such as queer and gender queer persons, those who are neurodivergent, or who face systemic barriers to their progression.
Applications are open throughout the year and are handled directly by Equal Measures in collaboration with The Drinks Trust.
