DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
We’re taking action to make the Canadian wine industry more inclusive and accessible
In March 2021, we released our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) Framework – aiming to support and encourage diversity within our workplace, organizational structures, and the Canadian wine industry.
To provide authentic leadership in the promotion of diversity, equity and inclusion, Wine Growers Canada is committed to several key items, including:
- Diversity, equity and inclusion being integral to our mission
- Ensuring equitable and inclusive policies, practices, programs and systems are in place and regularly reviewed
- Treating everyone with dignity and respect. This includes employees, prospective employees, contractors, consultants, suppliers, members and third parties
- The creation of a permanent DE&I Advisory Committee, to advise on and recommend on-going diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives
…and so much more.
To prove our commitment, WGC will release Progress Reports as we progress through our DE&I Framework.
