Sport is a critical channel for embedding respectful relationships, gender inclusion and the prevention of violence against women. Millions of men, women, boys and girls play or are involved in sport at some point in their lives and as a result sport is a powerful vehicle for growing safer and more respectful communities for all women.
Gender inclusion and respect should be incorporated into sporting events, programs, education and communication to develop a sporting culture which recognises and supports women at all levels of sport and also promotes the positive role men play in fostering gender equality.
Through utilising the positive influence of sport, White Ribbon provide tools, training and resources to mobilise clubs and associations in embedding respect and equality across Australian sporting culture.
We currently partner or collaborate with over 20 elite clubs and associations while hundreds of grassroots clubs across Australia utilise White Ribbon to drive respect in their clubs and communities.
