PHSA is going beyond the anti-bullying message of Pink Shirt Day with a new campaign for staff to raise awareness in creating safe and respectful workspaces.

​PHSA’s respectful workplace campaign #NotInOurWorkspace will begin alongside nationwide celebrations for Pink Shirt Day (February 28). Whereas Pink Shirt Day 2018 focuses on raising awareness in preventing and stopping cyber bullying, this campaign reinforces our commitment and accountability in maintaining a safe and respectful work environment for everyone across PHSA. 

From February 28-March 31, we’re raising awareness and supporting a culture of safety and respect in our workplace through the following initiatives: 

  • Wear Pink on February 28. We’ll be showing our support by wearing anything pink on Pink Shirt Day. This includes pink shirts, pink bow ties, pink shoelaces, pink scrubs, pink socks, pink lab coats and even pink epaulettes for our BCEHS colleagues. You can join us and others across the country by wearing pink and standing up against bullying.  

  • Be kind. We’ll be encouraging our staff to brighten up someone’s day with a note of appreciation on our intranet. If we made a difference for you or your family member, say thanks to your care team by sending a message of thanks.


Staff will be sharing how they’re helping to create a safe and respectful workplace with the hashtag #NotInOurWorkspace on PHSA’s Twitter and Facebook accounts. Join the conversation and follow along for updates!
