Get ready for Pink Shirt Day, the annual bullying prevention campaign run by the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.
On Friday 17 May workplaces across Aotearoa will turn māwhero/pink to Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu, Mauri Tū, Mauri Ora – Speak Up, Stand Together, Stop Bullying!
Bullying is a serious workplace issue in New Zealand, with between 15 to 20 percent of the workforce impacted. Pink Shirt Day can help you engage your people, start positive conversations and create a more inclusive workplace culture, where bullying can’t flourish!
To join the movement, register your workplace for Pink Shirt Day updates. You’ll be the first to know when the new workplace bullying prevention resource, fundraising morning tea pack, official pink t-shirt and other workplace activities are available.

You might also like to check out the Mental Health Foundation’s new Positive Communication at Work resource, which supports leaders, managers and their teams to build a culture of positive, mana-enhancing communication together, with a focus on four key areas: having clear intentions, asking more than telling, valuing relationships and making it safe to speak up. It's broken down into practical and easy-to-read fact sheets. Use it alone or alongside the other Working Well resources.
