Diversity and Equality in Wine

Australian Grape & Wine will continue to lead the sector in Diversity & Gender Equality in Wine (DEW) by driving uptake on the Diversity & Equality Charter for the Australian wine sector. 

The three documents that form the comprehensive framework for the Grape & Wine sector, in the area of Diversity and Equality:

The Charter

Supporting Document to the Charter

Action Plan

The Australian Grape & Wine Board signed off on the Charter and corresponding supporting document and implementation plan, at the inaugural Board Meeting on 5 March 2019. To seek greater diversity and equality in the sector, Australian Grape & Wine will require all Working Group members to become signatories/support the principles in the Charter. Members of Australian Grape & Wine will be encouraged to become signatories and support the principles in the Charter.
