DPTI united in white against domestic violence

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

15 July 2016


DPTI is one of the latest workplaces across the public and private sector to be awarded White Ribbon Workplace Accreditation – a proud acknowledgment of the active commitment as a department to prevent and respond to violence against women.

The accreditation process required DPTI to supply documented evidence against White Ribbon Australia’s Workplace Accreditation Framework, addressing 15 criteria.

Improvements were seen in staff awareness of policies and procedures, and overall awareness of the program with 65% of staff recognising the commitment of the organisation to addressing violence towards women.  The Risk Assessment Matrix received a special mention as did the White Ribbon intranet page and the Communications Plan.

The White Ribbon campaign is the largest global male-led movement to stop violence against women. It engages and enables men and boys to lead this social change. In Australia, White Ribbon is an organisation that works to prevent violence by changing the attitudes and behaviours that fuel gender inequality and men’s violence against women.
