White Ribbon Accreditation achieved

Benalla Health continues to lead the way with initiatives directed towards the prevention of family violence in its community and has achieved White Ribbon Workplace Accreditation, recognising its significant efforts to stop violence against women.

Chief Executive Officer Janine Holland said the accreditation was a great honour for the organisation, which had been working hard on leading the community in the prevention of violence against women.

“Our efforts have been driven by our whole organisation, but in particular our Community Health Director Neil Stott, who is a White Ribbon Ambassador,” she said.

“To achieve accreditation, we have met 15 criteria under three standards to create a safer and more respectful workplace, building on gender equality and diversity initiatives through providing the tools to strengthen a culture of respect and gender equality at all levels of the organisation.”
