DP World Australia has continued its commitment to preventing men’s violence against women by becoming a proud Silver Sponsor of White Ribbon Australia.
DP World Australia first attained White Ribbon Workplace Accreditation in 2015 and is currently undertaking reaccreditation with White Ribbon’s Workplaces Team. White Ribbon is proud to be both working with the company’s workforce through the accreditation program and to receive its support as a Silver Sponsor.
Paul Scurrah, DP World Australia’s Managing Director and CEO, said DP World Australia is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of White Ribbon Australia.
“With a male workforce of 92 percent, it was an easy decision to align with White Ribbon, the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end men’s violence against women.
As an accredited workplace, our sponsorship with White Ribbon reinforces our commitment to playing an active role in preventing violence against women.
We are proud to be part of the change needed to build greater equality and respect between men and women, and work to reduce attitudes in society that support violence,” he said.
Through Silver Sponsorship, White Ribbon will be supported to deliver primary prevention initiatives that aim to stop violence before it happens, through education, awareness raising and by challenging ingrained attitudes and power inequalities that give rise to men’s violence against women. White Ribbon is dedicated to delivering programs in schools, workplaces and the broader community.
