White Ribbon proud to partner with TransGrid for White Ribbon Day Parliament House Breakfast
White Ribbon is proud to announce TransGrid is continuing their support of the campaign to prevent violence against women by becoming the major sponsor of the White Ribbon Parliament House Breakfast to be held in Canberra on 28 November 2017.
The Parliament House Breakfast is an important annual event which brings together members of Government to recognise and commit to ending men’s violence against women.
The Government are actively involved in the White Ribbon Day campaign, with the House of Representatives recently speaking to a Motion on Monday 23 October supporting the prevention of violence against women by encouraging participation in raising critical awareness on White Ribbon Day this November.
TransGrid, a White Ribbon Australia Accredited Workplace, believes strongly in developing a nation that respects all women and allows them to live in safety, free from all forms of abuse which is why they are sponsoring this vital event.
TransGrid provides safe, reliable, sustainable and affordable transmission services to NSW, the ACT and the National Electricity Market.
“The work White Ribbon does in Australia is vitally important to changing societal attitudes and behaviours, and we are pleased to be able to support this cause,” Paul Italiano, TransGrid CEO said.
Through TransGrid’s sponsorship, White Ribbon will be supported to deliver primary prevention programs that aim to stop violence before it happens, through education, awareness raising and by challenging ingrained attitudes and power inequalities that give rise to men’s violence against women. White Ribbon is dedicated to delivering initiatives in schools, workplaces and the broader community.
