The Tasmanian Department of Education is seeking accreditation under the White Ribbon Workplace Accreditation Program.
The Accreditation Program is a rigorous process in which the Department will contribute to achieving the White Ribbon vision of creating an Australian society in which all women can live in safety, free from violence and abuse.
The Workplace Accreditation Program supports workplaces to adapt organisational culture, practices and procedures that promote safe workplaces for women and respectful relationships allowing this complex issue to be addressed in a safe and structured way.
Through this program DoE commits to community leadership in driving social change, raising awareness and changing attitudes and behaviours on the issue of violence towards women.
The Department’s commitment to leading this change and to zero tolerance for violence is detailed in the DoE Family Violence and Violence Against Women Policy.
Being involved with White Ribbon will build on the progress we have already made with the Respectful Schools – Respectful Workplaces program and the Departmental values identified in the Learners First Strategic Plan – Equity and Respect.
