Men urged to support White Ribbon Campaign

Men working at EEAST are being called to arms to stand against violence towards women.

The All Women in EEAST (AWE) group is inviting men working for the Trust to sign up to the White Ribbon Campaign, which is the largest global effort of men working to end male violence against women.

CEO Robert Morton is supporting the campaign and is keen for his male colleagues to do the same.

He said: “This is a specific call for men to pledge to end violence against women, something I think every person in this organisation supports.

“With the launch of AWE earlier this year, we are working to bring the concerns and celebrations of women in the Trust to the forefront and I think supporting a campaign like this, goes some way to highlight that the men working for EEAST don’t just support the women they work with but every woman in the community.”

AWE launched in May and aims to improve female representation in senior roles, accelerate gender pay quality and bring about real, tangible changes that make a positive difference for women working at EEAST.

Wearing a white ribbon is a personal pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women.

Each year the charity urges as many people as possible to wear a white ribbon for one week, starting on 25th November, the International Day for the Eradication of Violence Against Women.
