White Ribbon at DPAC

White RIbbon Accredited Workplace logo

The Department of Premier and Cabinet gained accreditation as a White Ribbon Workplace in 2016.

In 2019, we're working towards regaining our accreditation.

What is White Ribbon?

White Ribbon is Australia’s only national, male-led campaign to end men’s violence against women. The campaign aims to raise awareness and change attitudes and behaviours by engaging men and boys to lead social change.

White Ribbon’s vision is for all women to live in safety, free from all forms of violence. Their mission is to make women’s safety a man’s issue too.

White Ribbon is the world’s largest male-led movement to end men’s violence against women and is active in more than 60 countries.Square White Ribbon logo

The facts:

  • On average, one woman a week is murdered by her current or former partner.
  • In 2016, violence against women was estimated to cost the Australian economy $22 billion each year.
  • Almost in four women experience harassment in the workplace.
  • 94 per cent of employees agree employers should take a leadership role in educating their workforce about respectful relationships between men and women.
  • Violence against women in the workplace impacts on the organisational climate, productivity and employees’ sense of well-being.

DPAC as a White Ribbon Accredited Workplace

In August 2015, the Tasmanian Government released the whole-of-government Safe Homes, Safe Families: Tasmania’s Family Violence Action Plan 2015 - 2010. Action five of the plan is to roll out the White Ribbon Workplace Accreditation Program across all Tasmanian Government agencies.

Key benefits of being a workplace that takes active steps to prevent and respond to violence against women include:

  • being a leader and driver of social change;
  • improved office safety and moral;
  • increased staff knowledge and skills to address this issue;
  • improved retention rates and lower staff turnover;
  • improved work productivity and reduced absenteeism;
  • improved reputation; and
  • becoming an employer of choice.
