Ambassador Program Communique
Thank you for your interest in White Ribbon Australia’s Ambassador Program.
White Ribbon Australia, as part of the global White Ribbon movement, engages men to make women’s safety a man’s issue too.
Our vision is to have a nation that respects women, in which every woman lives in safety, free from all forms of men’s abuse. We focus on primary prevention: stopping the violence before it starts.
As part of the ongoing development of the Ambassador Program in 2017, and in conjunction with the finalisation of the Ambassador Re-committal process, please be advised that we are currently not recruiting Ambassadors and as a result no new White Ribbon Ambassadors applications will be accepted until after July 2017. By this time the recommittal process will be complete and we will have also reviewed the Program Model ready for the launch of its revised approach. This follows ongoing development of the Program in the first part of this year and consultation with key stakeholders.
In the meantime and as part of your White Ribbon journey, we encourage interested individuals to undertake our eLearning course Understanding Men’s Violence Against Women and familiarise themselves with White Ribbon key educational materials, which includes our updated fact sheets, and online video content. http://elearning.whiteribbon.org.au/
Furthermore, we encourage you to visit the links below for information, and resources on how to engage and support your community in preventing men’s violence against women:

We continue to broaden the opportunities for men to play an active role in their communities and become part of the White Ribbon social change movement working to prevent men’s violence against women. We encourage you to share your feedback, stories and journeys on how best you think this can be achieved.
