White Ribbon Australia's official media statement regarding the Gendered Violence and Citizenship Survey, being conducted by University of South Australia and Curtin University, which has revealed the extent to which domestic violence can impact a victim's work life, as reported by news.com.au.
A growing number of workplaces are engaging in activities designed to prevent men’s violence against women, including those involved in the White Ribbon Australia Workplace Accreditation Program. This program aims to support workplaces prevent and respond to violence against women.
Increased awareness of the impact domestic violence has on the work life of victims has seen workplaces become increasingly prominent sites for violence prevention and intervention in Australia, which is now home to the world’s first White Ribbon Accredited Workplaces.
Workplaces have a critical role to play in preventing violence against women. As such, we have developed a free research paper titled ‘Genders at Work’ to inform best practice prevention in workplaces. You can download it from www.whiteribbon.org.au/resources/research.
