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 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.

We are awaiting the outcome of some work currently in the pipeline – we hope to be able to make an announcement on this very soon.
We need your support to spread the word. Tag us in with #imadewbeliever on your socials and watch this movement grow.
