Event description
An empowering and educational event, inspiring employers, HR, H&S and business leaders to break down bullying in the workplace.

About this event

In Aotearoa, Pink Shirt Day works to create schools, workplaces, communities and whānau where everyone feels safe, valued and respected.

NZ has the second-highest rates of bullying in the world leading to increased rates of suicide within workplaces.

1 out of 10 individuals have been bullied in the workplace and have suicidal ideations – this is an extremely alarming number if you are the manager of a large organisation.

This year, PressGo is hosting an event in support of pink shirt day to educate and empower managers, employers, HR, H&S and business leaders to break down bullying in the workplace.

Enjoy a night of networking with other local business people in the Waikato.
