White Ribbon

WRWSamaritans is active in its commitment to stop violence against women. As an organisation, Samaritans has commenced the process of achieving accreditation as a White Ribbon Workplace.

The White Ribbon Accreditation Program recognises workplaces that are taking active steps to prevent and respond to violence against women, accreditating them as a White Ribbon Workplace.

Violence against women is a significant human rights issue which requires all sectors of the Australian community, including workplaces, to take action. At Samaritans, our aim is to be accredited as a White Ribbon Workplace and the statement of commitment is part of this process.

Men across Samaritans are growing their knowledge of the problem of violence against women and are actively taking a stance against it. Click here to watch a video made by some of these men as they demonstrate their committment to end violence against women.
