Role Purpose:
White Ribbon Australia is seeking individuals who would like to undertake a voluntary internship with an organisation committed to the prevention of men’s violence against women.

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.

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.
