Workplace Bullying Awareness Week 2024

How It Started

Dr. Gary Namie of the Workplace Bullying Institute in the United States started this week of events many years ago. His event is called Freedom from Workplace Bullying Week. This is something we would like 365 days of the year, so let’s build awareness and make that happen.

Linda Crockett, founder of the Canadian Institute of Workplace Bullying Resources, joined Gary on his week about 11 years ago. She named her event, Workplace Bullying Awareness Week. About 5 years ago, Linda invited other countries to join, and it is working! We now have numerous countries from around the world, joining together and building a worldwide voice promoting psychological safety in all workplaces.

Join us! Wherever you are!
