Workplace Bullying Awareness Week

Workplace Bullying Awareness Week 2022

Workplace Bullying Awareness Week is coming to an end and I am proud to show you that out of our 10 Canadian Provinces and 3 Territories, this year we have 9 provinces joining us! That means representatives in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Quebec, and Saskatchewan!

It is with much excitement that we invite Newfoundland, Yukon, Nunavut, and the Northwest Territories to join us in 2023 to make this a 100% Canada-wide event.

In addition, we now have international growth and power thanks to Ireland, Japan, New Zealand,  Australia, Malaysia, Africa, India, Wales, Greece, Finland, France, Hungary, United Kingdom and the United States of America joining in and building safety through awareness, and the sharing of their resources in their own countries.

We ask you to invite all of your states, provinces, territories, constituents, prefectures, regions, districts, and to plan for next year so we can make this an even bigger, more positively powerful vibration of change.

Wherever you are, share what you have learned, share what you do to help others and create change … and share about this worldwide event.

We are incredibly proud to say that this event has become one of the most exciting, powerful, awareness building events ever! This event has taken the shame and silencing of this abuse out of the closet! That’s powerful!  I am confident in saying that this event has saved many lives!


Thank you everyone for the amazing work you do!

Workplace Bullying Awareness Week 2022

October 16 – 22, 2022

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 10 years ago. She named her event, Workplace Bullying Awareness Week. About 4 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!
