Can I arrange for an Advocate to speak at my event?
Sometimes you may be able to have a White Ribbon Advocate (or Ambassador) attend your White Ribbon event to present about violence against women and primary prevention.
To request a White Ribbon speaker for your event please register your event. If you want an Advocate to attend, ensure you register at least four weeks in advance.
Please be aware that provision of a speaker for your event will depend on our volunteer availability, and cannot always be guaranteed. As our representatives act in a voluntary capacity it may take some time to secure someone to attend. Please note that we do not provide a celebrity service and hope you will respect the contribution of our volunteers who dedicate their time to make a difference for the White Ribbon social change movement.
When will I hear who my White Ribbon speaker is?
We receive a high volume of requests and are currently working to secure speakers for events. As our representatives act in a voluntary capacity it may take some time to secure someone to attend. In over 90% of instances we are able to find a suitable speaker. When we have found a suitable speaker to attend your event, you will be notified via email immediately to ensure you are best able to plan and organise your event. If we are unable to secure a speaker, you will be notified 10 business days prior to your event, and be provided with alternative resources you can use at the event.
