It is Pink Shirt Day tomorrow and the TEU is working with Massey University to take a stand against workplace bullying by celebrating the day at each of its campuses.
Pink Shirt Day is an opportunity for people to take a collective stand in support of healthy, respectful and bully-free workplaces.
The TEU at Massey University will be talking to staff and students about workplace bullying at stalls from 11.30 to 1.30 at their Albany, Manawatu and Wellington campuses.
Staff at Albany will be by Student Central, at Manawatu they will be on the concourse and in Wellington they will be in the pyramid.
At both Manawatu and Wellington there will be a range of people who deal with harassment and discrimination to meet and chat with.
Each campus is also holding a competition encouraging staff to turn their department pink. The winning department will receive morning tea.
Heather Warren, organiser of the TEU branch at Massey University, said: “Pink Shirt Day is a really important opportunity for us to talk to people about the steps we can take together to end workplace bullying. We’ll do what we can to turn the university pink tomorrow to make sure everyone knows bullying will not be tolerated.”
Pink Shirt Day at Massey is just one part of the work the university and the TEU do together to meet the institution’s commitment to pay and employment equity.
If you are planning to take a stand in support of bully-free workplaces as part of Pink Shirt Day, send us your photos and we will let others know what you’re up to.
