Australia is one of the most diverse countries in the world. Diversity and inclusion is an important part of our way of life. Diversity doesn’t just mean different ethnicities, races and religions, but includes gender, sexuality, age, abilities, perspectives, social and economic backgrounds, life experiences and all other aspects that makes someone unique. White Ribbon Australia celebrates and embraces diversity in all its forms.
Inclusion puts diversity into action, by creating an environment of involvement and respect. White Ribbon Australia works to ensure that all people we engage with feel respected, supported and safe to contribute in meaningful ways. Inclusion of diverse perspectives in this social movement leads to new ideas which help drive our collective growth.
