Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) staff across Australia will come together today to say no to domestic violence by wearing a white shirt, and participating in a talk and Q&A session to raise awareness of this issue.
On 20 November, we recognise White Ribbon Day. Also in November, the 16 Days of Activism is marked globally to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls. It begins on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and goes to 10 December, Human Rights Day.
Gendered domestic violence is not acceptable, however continues to be a societal issue. Today, think about the opportunities that you have to make a lasting change in attitudes and behaviours that ensure the safety and wellbeing of women and children.
If you suspect anyone you know may be suffering domestic violence, please encourage them to seek help. It is more important than ever that we support one another.
