City staff donned pink shirts on Wednesday, February 27—National Anti-bullying Day. The day started to gain formal recognition around the world over the last decade as a way to collectively stand up to bullying, whether in the home, in social circles, in public, in schools, online or in the workplace.
The City recognizes anti-bullying through its Respectful Conduct policy, and is committed to ensuring that all individuals are treated with dignity and respect and that they are free from bullying and harassment, discrimination, and sexual harassment.
Anti-bullying Day has become synonymous with Pink Shirt Day, as people demonstrate awareness and support of anti-bullying initiatives by wearing pink.
Thanks to sponsorship by Fulton & Company LLP, City staff received pink shirts emblazoned with the phrase Stand Together to Stop Bullying.
