We are on our way to becoming a White Ribbon workplace by demonstrating our commitment to ending violence against women.
As a co-applicant with the Department of Treasury and Finance, we join many government organisations in showing leadership, driving social change and taking active steps to prevent and respond to violence against women.
The White Ribbon Accreditation Program recognises workplaces as centres of respect and proactivity in relation to the safety of women. The program involves developing policies, practices, training and a workplace culture, aligned to the values of White Ribbon.
Assessment of workplaces takes place against criteria set down by White Ribbon’s independent assessors.
As a part of the process, all of our staff are taking the White Ribbon Oath, and will receive violence awareness training. We are expecting to receive our accreditation by mid 2016.
