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 program developed by Women’s Health Grampians, to enable workplaces to provide appropriate support to women experiencing violence, while also addressing the underlying causes of violence to prevent it occurring, both in the workplace, and in our broader community.

It requires support at leadership level, the formation of an internal Action Group, an organisational assessment, the development and implementation of an action plan (suited specifically to your organisation), and periodic ongoing review. Actions to ensure the ongoing sustainability of the program form part of the action plan.

If you would like more information about doing Act@Work at your workplace please contact Women’s Health Grampians.
