The most positive outcome for Ruth and me from our Workplace Bullying University is the hope attendees share with us. We get to bask in it for the three days we spend together. The June 2012 group was great. WBU participants are always the cream of the crop. All bring firsthand knowledge of being bullied. All have special talents to convince organizations to change. All are committed to helping make our society less tolerant of bullying. We had the typical mix of Canadian and American professionals. The special treat this time was our first Australian to attend in person. All left with the WBI message, materials and research to disseminate in their corner of the world. University is perhaps the most fulfilling work we do. We owe that feeling to the optimism participants impart to these two cynics who sometimes fear that evil people who rule will win in the long run. In the afterglow of an exhausting University training, our spirits rise, believing that “yes we can change the world because the good moral people say so!”
Special thanks to the new WBU Alumns — Anita, Sarah, Nathalie, Stephanie, Michael and Sean — who join the ranks of the elite WBI-trained affiliates spreading the word throughout the world. Learn how to become a WBI Affiliate by attending Workplace Bullying University.

Since 2008, WBI founders have periodically offered intensive, interactive, small-group training for mental health counselors, human resources professionals, attorneys, trainers and consultants. All have sought to either establish a new practice or expand an existing one to include a specialization in workplace bullying. It is a 3-day training called Workplace Bullying University. Sessions are held in Bellingham, Washington.
The next University is June 15-17 for general professional audiences.

BCGEU President Darryl Walker announced the union’s commitment to stopping workplace bullying on Pink Shirt Day, Feb. 29. Said Walker,
“the BCGEU is a strong advocate of respect in the workplace and we’re continuing to put mechanisms in place to address the problem. We’ve organized member and public awareness campaigns, and held workshops to ensure our members are knowledgeable about workplace bullying and the steps they can take when they encounter it… We’ve also negotiated anti-bullying language into collective agreements.”
WBI’s Gary Namie addresses a BCGEU workplace bullying event on March 9.

One WBI goal is to educate everyone — the affected individuals, employers and lawmakers — about Workplace Bullying. Acknowledgment of its existence and preventability necessarily precedes corrective action. Our momentum accelerated in 2011, all thanks to new staff, new consultants and new State Coordinators who expanded our repertoire. What a year! Here’s the year-end review.
