Pink Shirt Day, held annually on the last Wednesday of February every year (February 22nd, 2023), is a national campaign dedicated to promoting kindness, inclusiveness and respect in schools and the workplace and beyond. It is a perfect opportunity to raise awareness about the impact of bullying and to encourage everyone to take action to prevent it.
It is important to address the issue of workplace bullying, as it directly impacts the mental health and wellbeing of workers, especially in motion pictures and performing arts where work can often be intense and high-pressure. On set, it is essential that all workers feel safe, respected and supported. Unfortunately, bullying can have a profound impact on both physical and mental health and can lead to decreased morale, productivity and job satisfaction.
