Committee Event

Northparkes Mines hosts Rosie Batty

27 September 2018

7:00 am - 3:00 pm
Parkes Coventry Room, Newell Highway, Parkes, New South Wales, 2870

Northparkes has proudly supported the White Ribbon campaign for several years now. In 2016, we became the first mine in Australia to become a White Ribbon accredited workplace. As a White Ribbon accredited workplace, we join a group of organisations committed to preventing and responding to violence again women.

As a large employer in the Central West, it is important to us that we help break the cycle of domestic violence by supporting initiatives that improve the wellbeing of the community in which we live and work. Our journey towards Zero Harm Operations is a relentless focus across our entire sphere of operation, and our approach to domestic violence is an important part of this philosophy.

As part of our ongoing commitment to White Ribbon, we are bringing Rosie Batty to Parkes. Rosie is an Australian domestic violence campaigner and the 2015 Australian of the Year. Her role as a campaigner began in 2014 after her 11 year old son Luke Batty was murdered by his father. Sessions will be attended by Northparkes Mines employees, local first responders and Parkes, Forbes and Peak Hill Family and Domestic Violence committees.
