Inclusion & Expansion Educational Fund

The Michigan Wine Collaborative’s Inclusion & Expansion Committee is working to provide representation and advocacy for underserved people in the Michigan wine industry in order to increase inclusion and expansion in the our industry.

We are raising funds that will enable us to offer support to create and maintain the pipeline of recruitment, both for the industry and its consumers. It is our goal to specifically provide resources to support aspiring BIPOC students from Michigan seeking certifications or degrees with WSET or VESTA. 

Help us reach our financial goal to:

·       Provide Scholarship Opportunities

·       Support Mentorship Programs

·       Increase marketing to include more Michigan wine drinkers representing BIPOC, Latinx, LGBTQ, and those living with disabilities

·       Create Industry & Community Outreach Projects

In 2021 we intend to send at least 1 BIPOC student through to level 2 of WSET or the first year of the VESTA program.
