Prevent men’s violence against women

Become an Ambassador

White Ribbon Ambassadors

White Ribbon Ambassadors are trained men who recognise the importance of men taking responsibility and being part of the solution to end the violence, abuse and inequality faced by women across Australia. They are essential supporters who volunteer their time and energy into promoting the work of White Ribbon. Along with White Ribbon Advocates, Ambassadors are our official representatives who stand up, speak out and act to prevent men’s violence against women.

What is involved in being a White Ribbon Ambassador?

White Ribbon Ambassadors stand alongside White Ribbon Advocates at the forefront of White Ribbon as a community owned social movement. Ambassadors actively engage men in their spheres of influence to see the social change necessary to end men’s violence against women.

The Ambassador Program support men across Australia via information, tools and development activities to promote gender equality, respectful relationships and the ongoing engagement of men in the prevention of violence against women.

White Ribbon Ambassadors are required to meet key milestone achievements under three streams over the course of their tenure: Educate, Engage and Act. These activities ensure that Ambassadors are adequately equipped with information and practical resources to effectively engage their local community to prevent men’s violence against women.
