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.
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 Committee 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.
To sign up to the Charter, download the form using the link below and send back to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or PO Box 2414 Kent Town SA 5071.
