At Trillium, the women on our team play a variety of roles necessary to produce and share our beer, food, and experiences. Our skills and backgrounds are diverse, but we chose craft beer as an industry, and Trillium in particular, for its hospitality and sense of community. Here we believe that empowering individuals, rather than genders, allows us to grow and be our best as a team. We see this as a level playing field for all; an environment where people are welcome to try new things and contribute in all aspects of the business. Beer is for everyone.
Leading up to International Women’s Day, we will release Level Playing Field 2020, our annual Pink Boots Society collaboration, at all locations on Saturday, March 7th. This year we’ll kick off with a celebration event at our Canton brewery. Namaste & Network was imagined and brought to you by Trillium Canton’s Event Planner, Carolina Gonzalez. Carolina’s personal story is a great reflection of our intentions at Trillium and reveals one perspective shared by many of the women here:
“One year ago I was at a crossroads in my career. I was working in event marketing for a large corporation in Boston, but was looking for a smaller company where I could have a creative outlet and work closely in a tight-knit team. I wanted a place that emphasized women in the workplace, philanthropic efforts, and where I could have a voice. Then I came across the Event Planner role at Trillium Canton.
Of course I did some research on Trillium first to see what made this company pulse. What were their beliefs? What did they stand for? I came across an International Women’s Day event that was being hosted that same day, where you had the opportunity to meet Trillium co-founder Esther Tetreault. “This brewery was co-founded by a woman?!” I was in!
