Challenging sexism, discrimination and violence against women

Together we can reduce the rates of violence in our community, starting in the workplace.

Act@Work is an organisation-wide cultural-change program for workplaces.

Violence in the context of this program is defined as any act of gender-based activity that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual, or psychological harm or suffering to women. It can also include spiritual and financial abuse, using intimidation, threats and isolation. Preventing violence against women requires changing cultural beliefs and attitudes that support it: gender inequality, rigid gender roles and stereotypes, sexism and discrimination. The program aims to promote equal and respectful relationships between women and men.
