Diversity, Equality & Inclusion in Wine
Australian Grape & Wine will continue to lead the sector in Diversity, Equality and Inclusion in Wine (DEIW) by driving uptake on the DEIW Charter for the Australian wine sector.
Much has happened since the Charter and Action Plan were created in 2019. As such, Australian Grape & Wine have re-established a new Committee for DEIW. The Charter has been updated to reflect current society, while planning and strategic alignment for the Action Plan for the sector is under review.
Australian Grape & Wine continues to seek greater diversity, equality and inclusion in the sector, requiring all Committee members to become signatories and support the principles in the Charter. Members of Australian Grape & Wine will be encouraged to become signatories and support the principles in the Charter.

To celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March 2023, Australian Grape & Wine’s Diversity Equality & Inclusion in Wine (DEIW) Committee has commissioned a short video montage of Charter Signatories saying why they signed it and how they are #CrackingTheCode of gender equality. Watch the video here to see what they said!
The DEIW Committee commissioned a survey of the Australian grape & wine sector to understand how important diversity, equality and inclusion is to the people working in the grape and wine sector. The survey has now closed and we look forward to sharing the outcomes as soon as possible.
We need your support to spread the word. Tag us in with #DEIW on your socials and watch this movement grow.
