c2c is now White Ribbon Accredited, committing to working towards ending violence against women and girls

White Ribbon is the UK’s leading charity engaging men and boys to end violence against women and girls. White Ribbon’s mission is to prevent men’s violence against women and girls by addressing its root causes and by challenging long-established attitudes, behaviours and systems around masculinity that perpetuate gender inequality and men’s violence against women.

As a White Ribbon Accredited organisation, c2c will deliver a comprehensive multi-year plan to transform its staff culture, systems, and the wider community it operates in. This strategy will help c2c eliminate attitudes and behaviours that lead to violence against women. White Ribbon Accreditation is an opportunity to make the workplace a safe place for men and women, and to upskill colleagues to become changemakers.

To qualify for accreditation, c2c established a steering committee and recruited ambassadors from around the organisation to champion the cause, and ensure it was doing all it can to act against gender inequality. c2c also set out an initial action plan to outline the actions that as an organisation it would take to meet its including staff training and building awareness of the campaign.

Rob Mullen, c2c Managing Director, said, “I’m very proud that c2c has achieved White Ribbon Accreditation. As an organisation, we believe it is essential to demonstrate that we care about standing up for women who are facing gender-based inequality. Through this accreditation, we have made a commitment to challenge attitudes, to educate and to provide support to our colleagues and customers.”
