Benetas is proudly working with White Ribbon to create a safer workplace

Benetas is proudly undertaking White Ribbon Australia Workplace Accreditation Program, Australia’s leading edge, internationally recognised workplace-based prevention program. The program aims to raise awareness of and enhance positive action to help stop men’s violence against women.

We believe all forms of violence are unacceptable

This program is just one way we can make a difference. We encourage our staff and the Benetas community to join us and take an active role in promoting positive and safe relationships for all and swear the White Ribbon Oath

Australia is not immune to violence

Benetas recognises that violence against women and Family Violence are serious community issues in Australia where:

  • Over 12 months, on average, one woman is killed every week as a result of intimate partner violence
  • One in three women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence perpetrated by someone known to them
  • One in five women experience harassment within the workplace 

The White Ribbon organisation

White Ribbon is a national organisation working to change the attitudes and behaviours that perpetuate men’s violence against women by engaging men and boys to lead social change so that all women live in safety free from all forms of men’s violence. For more information see the White Ribbon website.
