White Ribbon Day

19 Nov 2021

Men’s violence against women is an ongoing epidemic in Australia and, sadly, the COVID pandemic has made the situation worse; lockdowns and social distancing have not only created a spike in violence, but also reduced the ability of victims to seek help.

To stop this, we need to change the attitudes and social norms that excuse or condone disrespect, sexual harassment and abuse. We all need to play our part – and we need men who know that they are a part of the solution to be equipped with the tools they need to make change in themselves, their communities and our society.

This White Ribbon Day our 2021 theme is ‘How Can Men Make Change?’ Learn, Give, Take Action’.

Workplaces have the power to drive social change, bring about awareness and impact the daily lives of Australians. The collective power of colleagues working together to bring about social change has a positive influence on employee sense of well-being and meaningfulness in their work.

There are different ways your workplace can get involved. Host a fundraising or awareness event. Offer proceeds of your goods and services through cause-related marketing or take on workplace giving. Workplaces can also take on the long-term commitment to become a White Ribbon Accredited Workplace or undergo a Partnership program.
