Aurizon, Australia’s largest rail freight operator, has a deep and long-standing commitment to tackling domestic and family violence, leading the ‘Wake Up and Walk’ campaign to raise awareness for domestic and family violence in 2009, and raising awareness through White Ribbon Day activities, including having large white ribbons on Aurizon’s locomotives.

In 2015 Aurizon’s Male Champions of Change organised and supported a range of awareness and fundraising events in nearly every work location across Queensland.

Aurizon has provided financial support through their Community Giving Fund to a range of organisations responding to those experiencing domestic and family violence.

In 2014 Aurizon introduced its first Domestic and Family Violence Policy. The policy was then updated to include 10 days of domestic and family violence leave, the provision of domestic and family violence resources for employees and domestic and family violence training for HR business partners.
