White Ribbon Australia celebrates the accreditation of twenty-seven organisations as White Ribbon Workplaces. This brings the total number of White Ribbon accredited workplaces in Australia to 107. A further 78 workplaces are currently working towards accreditation. So far the White Ribbon Accreditation Program has reached over 600,000 Australians via their workplace.

Over the past eighteen months, these organisations have undertaken rigorous training, having satisfied fifteen assessment criteria under three separate standards. They have demonstrated effective leadership, resource allocation, communication, HR policy development and training to create a safer and more respectful workplace. White Ribbon Australia celebrates the largest group of accredited workplaces to complete its Workplace Accreditation Program. This cohort features a diverse cross-section of organisations, from local councils to a multinationals.

“We congratulate all the workplaces receiving accreditation today on their extraordinary effort and dedication,” said Libby Davies, Chief Executive of White Ribbon Australia.

“These organisations have committed time and resources to review and enhance their HR policies, procedures and the way in which they communicate with staff. They have delivered training to managers and staff on what it means to work in a safe and respectful workplace.

“Workplace Accreditation gives employers across all sectors the means to create and sustain a working environment based on equality and mutual respect. The benefits of standing up and speaking out about men’s violence against women extend beyond the immediate office environment.” concluded Ms Davies.

Accreditation lasts for three years and evidences an ongoing, sustainable commitment to the prevention of violence against women.
