Organisations play a pivotal part in preventing violence against women and are key to ensuring the success of preventing violence against women in a way that is sustainable, strategic and effective.

Every organisation we work with acknowledges that men’s violence against women is a serious and prevalent issue in the Australian community. They share our vision that all women live in safety, free from violence and abuse. They see an active role for their organisation in preventing violence against women including working with their own networks, staff, and customers; and by directly supporting the primary prevention work of White Ribbon Australia.

White Ribbon Partners share a strong strategic alignment with the mission and values of the White Ribbon Campaign. Partners are an integral part of White Ribbon’s strategy to expand the reach and impact of the Campaign. Partners do this by taking the Supporters model further and commit to:

(a) Exclusively or co-sponsoring Campaigns and/or primary prevention programs
(b) Financial support via fundraising activities, major event sponsorship and sale of White Ribbon merchandise

White Ribbon Supporters progress the Campaign within their own organisation and networks. Supporters implement a yearly plan as to how the organisation will commit to:

(a) community development - working together to keep the Campaign growing
(b) awareness raising - promoting the Campaign and leading awareness raising initiatives
(c) fundraising support - leading locally co-ordinated fundraising drives and events

White Ribbon Community based organisations, committees and action groups work with White Ribbon Australia to keep the Campaign alive and growing through grass-roots awareness raising initiatives. Working collaboratively with the community is a key strategy of White Ribbon Australia.

White Ribbon Australia appreciates the support provided by individuals and organisations across the country for activities that align with our strategic focus of engaging men in the primary prevention of men’s violence against women. On occasion, White Ribbon is unable to accept support (awareness raising and/or fundraising) or partner with organisations that may not align with this strategy and/or are engaged in activities that may be perceived to undermine White Ribbon's mission. These include:

  • Activities involving the perceived objectification of women
  • Initiatives that position women as bearing responsibility for preventing men’s violence against them (e.g. female safety apps, whistles, etc.)

White Ribbon Australia appreciates the support of corporate partners, whose brand and profile can foreground White Ribbon's work in primary prevention. Please note that White Ribbon Australia does not accept any funds raised as a result of the sale of alcohol.
