White Ribbon Australia teamed up with the Institute of Managers and Leaders Australia and New Zealand (IML ANZ) to deliver events that explored ideas and actions to promote gender equality, prevent violence against women and children, and stop workplace harassment. Collectively, there were 22 events reaching over 2,900 attendees in 19 locations across Australia.
International Women’s Day Great Debates 2019
For 22 years on International Women’s Day IML ANZ has invited business leaders and personalities?? to debate a challenging topic around gender equality. This year’s sell-out events across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane debated “Her aspiration needs his cooperation.”
White Ribbon Australia are delighted to be this year’s charity partner, with the day raising over $48,000 to support our primary prevention programs throughout Australia.
White Ribbon Australia’s new CEO Delia Donovan joined the debating team in Brisbane, and White Ribbon Australia representatives gave opening presentations on why violence prevention matters.
Special thanks to Penelope Twemlow, Sharon Orapeleng, David Galbally, Tori Cooke, Simone O’Brien, Tanya Whitehouse, Simon Earle, and Dale Palmer.
Leadership Outlook Series 2019: Creating a Safe & Respectful Workplace
The Leadership Outlook Series is a national program that in 2019 focused on creating safe, respectful workplaces. Presented by White Ribbon Australia’s Workplace Program Team, workshops explored violence and its contributing factors, workplace strategies to support staff experiencing violence, and ways to promote safety and reduce risk.
Taking the workshop across the country to the 20 cities, White Ribbon team members Stephanie Callanan, Stacey Nelan and Ronan Smyth delivered informative and practical sessions. As Operations Manager Sally Roebuck from Queensland wrote:
I’m pleased to say that today’s series was just as powerful of a catalyst for change as last year’s Outlook Series! I came away with my mind whirring with ways that we can advocate and support women in our community and team, as well as challenging gender stereotypes and norms to bring about attitudinal change… I already have lots of ideas for change here, which we will be getting started on straight away!
