Diversity and Equality in Wine
Australian Grape & Wine is honoured to continue the work in the area of Diversity & Gender Equality that was started by the Winemaker's Federation of Australia. We will continue to lead the sector regarding gender equality, by driving uptake on the Diversity & Equality Charter for the Australian wine sector.
Under WFA, the working group produced three documents to form a comprehensive framework for the Grape & Wine sector, in the area of Diversity and Equality:
The WFA Board signed off on the Charter and corresponding supporting document and implementation plan, to seek greater diversity and equality in the sector. Australian Grape & Wine will require all Board and Committee members to become signatories/support the principles in the Charter and will encourage all members to become signatories/support the principles in the Charter.
Email us to express your commitment to become a signatory to the Australian Grape & Wine Diversity & Gender Equality Charter.
WFA launched the Diversity and Equality Charter and Action Plan at the 2018 Australian Women in Wine Awards in Sydney on Friday 16 November, 2018.
Australian Grape & Wine will be calling on it's Members to become signatories to the Charter, and communications for this will be sent in February 2019.
