Expert on workplace bullying to address hot topic at MTSU March 17

Dr. Gary Namie, nationally recognized expert on bullying, will speak at Middle Tennessee State University on Thursday, March 17, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the State Farm Room of the Business and Aerospace Building. The title of his presentation is “Take a Stand: Stop Bullying.” The event, sponsored by the Distinguished Speaker Series and the Jennings A. Jones College of Business, will be free and open to the public.

Namie directs a national network of citizen lobbyists, which is working to pass into law the anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill. He taught the first U.S. university course on workplace bullying and was an expert witness in the nation’s first “bullying trial” in Indiana.

Namie and his wife, Dr. Ruth Namie, produce information on eight public websites devoted to education about bullying for citizens, lawmakers, unions and employers. Their work has been featured on “Today,” “Good Morning America,” CNN, NPR and in newspapers across the country.

To ease traffic congestion caused by construction in the area, visitors attending the event may park in the large parking lot east of Rutherford Boulevard and ride the Raider Xpress shuttle to the Business and Aerospace Building.

For more information, contact Dr. Jackie Gilbert in the Jones College of Business at 615-898-5418. You also may check out Gilbert’s blog on bullying.
