White Ribbon Day: Stand up against domestic violence
25 November 2016: Today is White Ribbon Day, the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end men's violence against women. This day focuses on promoting gender equality and healthy relationships.
One in three women have experienced physical and/or sexual abuse by someone known to them. Also, on average, one woman is killed every week in Australia as a result of domestic violence.
This year, White Ribbon Australia is asking men to stand up, speak out and act for the women in their lives. HCF is promoting this day internally to help raise awareness among its employees. We’re sending the symbolic White Ribbons to all staff to wear in taking a stance. We also provide support mechanisms for employees through confidential counselling.
Join the thousands of men who have taken the oath for the women in their lives this White Ribbon Day.
