Freedom Week Thank You

Here at WBI we would like to thank everyone who was involved with Freedom From Workplace Bullies Week 2009.

Freedom from Workplace Bullies Week was a chance to break though the shame and silence surrounding bullying. It was a national call to action. Anyone can participate in the way they seem fit. Here are some examples of ways people celebrated.

“I composed an unemotional, professional letter to our Board of Directors and sent it.”

“I put up a poster in my local career center. “

“I put a poster in the HR office, and published an article in our company’s newsletter.”

“I posted awareness messages on my facebook and myspace accounts about Freedom Week. I also posted it on my anti-bully blog.”

“I wrote a letter to our local chamber of commerce.”

One college professor led a discussion on the topic of workplace bullying.

Many people reported having conversations with loved ones or co-workers. Many others posted posters around their home town.

Thank you to all who participated.
If you are interested in doing more for Freedom From Bullies Week next year please let us know.

    I think my week of Bullying has just begun. Actually, it has been already been going on. I just never said anything, now, after I said something, the escalation has increased to a higher pitch, and I finally put a complaint in a confidential email to the Director. Something I’ve never done in 5 years. I expect the retaliation to REALLY increase now.

    I know I’m not the only one in the unit. She is doing this to everyone. I’m probably one of the only ones who has not complained formally.

      Best to confirm your suspicions about not being the only one. Ask around. Form a group. Plot ways to undermine the idiot together. You will all feel validated. Planning the sabotage can be fun. The ultimate goal is not simply survival. It is to oust her. GN
