Today is international White Ribbon Day - the White Ribbon campaign is to eliminate men’s violence towards women by encouraging men to take ownership of this important issue and model good behaviour that can change attitudes and behaviour.
Napier City Council has recently become a White Ribbon accredited employer. Accreditation recognises that Napier City Council has integrated violence prevention into its business practice. This includes implementing a Family Violence Policy, training for staff and participation in violence prevention campaigns.
Napier City Council CEO Wayne Jack is one of four of Council’s “White Ribbon Ambassadors”:
“I’m so pleased that NCC has now achieved accreditation. This is public recognition that as an organisation we have integrated violence prevention into our business practice,” says Mr Jack.
“This is an important issue and I’m proud to be one of four ambassadors at NCC.”
This year’s White Ribbon Day theme is “Challenge the #Unspoken Rules”. Unspoken Rules are the expectations that boys and young men inherit from society, based on outdated ideas of what a man is, how he acts, and how he should express himself.
