Honored to be on board for Captain Myers' last flight! (& sit next to his wife for the trip) Water cannons from the fire department welcomed him home safely. Happy trails, fair winds, & following seas!

"Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance." "It's not just about head count, it's about making those heads count." An insightful panel on DEI with DEI leaders from @universityofky @brownforman @beamsuntory, all trying to put themselves out of a job. #StraightUp #WhiskeyWanderer #BeamConference #DEI #DiversityEquityInclusion
