Diversity and Equality in Wine
Australian Grape & Wine is honoured to continue the work in the area of Diversity & Gender Equality in Wine (DEW) 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.

We were thrilled with the response to DEW at AWITC, Session 3 of the Outlook Conference - Getting the Foundations Right, Monday 22 July 2019.
We need your support to spread the word. Tag us in with #imadewbeliever on your socials and watch this movement grow!
Our next stop: New York City where we will take DEW to the global stage at the Australian Women in Wine Awards on 17 September 2019.
