Judge Peter Boshier
White Ribbon Chair


From the chair

Last month we announced that White Ribbon will focus on sexual violence and the issue of consent in our November Campaign.

We are now putting the first part of the campaign programme together, by announcing the dates and venues for workshops which will focus on sexual violence and the issue of consent.

These workshops will bring together those people and agencies that are working in the sector and or affected by the issue of sexual violence.

White Ribbon will then begin to put together the November campaign, in which one of the most important components is you - the White Ribbon supporter.

We all have people within our reach, agencies we can connect to and family and colleagues we can influence. Together we can grow the audience for this campaign and raise awareness and get people to take action.


Campaign Workshops Dates

This year’s theme for White Ribbon will focus on sexual violence and the issue of consent.

The campaign is holding two workshops (one in Auckland and the other in Wellington) bringing together experts and stakeholders to help shape the campaign, by looking at the problem, specific NZ issues, research, equivalent overseas campaigns, possible solutions and how to convey these in a NZ campaign.

There is no cost to attend the workshop; however numbers could be limited if demand exceeds available places.
