Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA) will always remain committed to standing up, speaking out, and acting to prevent men’s violence towards women and children.
One in three women experience physical and/or sexual violence perpetrated by someone known to them, and one in five women experience harassment within the workplace.
We aim to become a lead agency in creating change that will promote gender equality, healthy relationships, and a new vision of masculinity. Speaking out against domestic violence is everyone’s business.
We are committed to:
- never excuse or remain silent about domestic violence against women, and
- always take action.
Violence against women is not tolerated at PIRSA and we have policies and procedures to support survivors of domestic violence and abuse.
White Ribbon Accreditation
PIRSA has been a White Ribbon Workplace Accredited organisation since 2016, and began the reaccreditation process in July 2019.
White Ribbon Australia ceased its operations in October 2019 and Communicare will now be taking over. In light of this, PIRSA is fully committed to the process and will meet the criteria for reaccreditation – reaffirming our dedication to changing attitudes and behaviours in relation to domestic violence.
Employees who are experiencing or escaping domestic violence are recognised and supported through our Domestic Violence Workplace Policy ().
We also have a Gender Equality and Respect Action Plan which puts in place key actions and strategies to support our commitment to gender equality and ending domestic violence.
