Stand up against bullying this Pink Shirt Day.
Pink Shirt Day aims to create workplaces, schools and communities where all people feel safe, valued and respected, regardless of age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability or cultural background.
To "Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu, Mauri Tū, Mauri Ora – Speak Up, Stand Together, Stop Bullying" in your workplace, register to take part in Pink Shirt Day, and be the first to know when new resources are launched.
Bullying is a serious issue in New Zealand. Every year one in 10 workers experience bullying in the workplace, and we have the third-highest rate of school bullying out of 36 OECD countries.
Pink Shirt Day works to reduce bullying by celebrating diversity in all its forms, and supporting schools, workplaces and communities to be safe, supportive, welcoming and inclusive of all.
Each year, more and more workplaces get involved in Pink Shirt Day, seeing it as a great opportunity to celebrate diversity, raise awareness and understanding of bullying, and take action to prevent it – all while having a heap of Pink Shirt Day fun.
If you'd like to do more to prevent bullying, the Mental Health Foundation has produced a range of resources to help. See also its Positive Communication at Work resource to support leaders, managers and their teams build a culture of positive communication together - that's a culture where bullying cannot thrive.
