San Jose, CA, August 11, 2021 — LibDib, today unveiled the company’s Women’s Leadership Council, a career-growth and educational group designed specifically for the needs of LibDib’s female employees. The ongoing program provides the women of LibDib with tools to improve communication skills, leadership training and regular workshops–all with the goal of empowering employees in the workplace and at home. In an ongoing commitment to building female leaders in the wine and spirits wholesale industry, the company also announced the renewal of their corporate membership to Women of the Vine & Spirits, the global membership organization dedicated to boldly pushing the wine, beer and spirits industry toward a more diverse, equitable and inclusive era that empowers all to succeed.
“As a female founder and CEO in the traditionally male-dominated wholesale beverage alcohol industry, it’s always been a goal of the LibDib executive team to hire and promote women in the industry,” said Cheryl Durzy, Founder and CEO of LibDib. “Our team is 50% women, many of whom have leadership roles in our company. Our Women’s Leadership Program ensures that women not only have a seat at the table, but that they are able to bring their best selves to work, home and everywhere in between.”
The LibDib Women’s Leadership Program was created by LibDib and the McGuckin Group, a talent design and innovation firm. The program consists of regular coaching sessions with industry leaders, as well as group sessions for the LibDib team, management training with male counterparts, and ongoing development opportunities.
“We applaud LibDib for their continued focus on being a part of the solution in beverage alcohol,” said Deborah Brenner, Founder & CEO of Women of the Vine & Spirits. “At Women of the Vine & Spirits, we know that internal initiatives that enhance diversity, equity and inclusion within companies leads to business development and innovation; it is not only a business imperative, but also ethically and morally the only route to equality,”
