Pink Shirt Day at Evergreen

EBCC celebrated Pink Shirt Day with our hearts on our chests. Lynn Lyall HEU representative on the JOH&S committee had the idea for a campus wide campaign to support the new anti-bullying legislation. Lynn spear headed the event, ordered the shirts and hand dyed them with a little help from a few friends. The JOH&S committee decided to hold a contest to engage the staff in coming up with a slogan for our special t-shirts. Arlene Tagalicud was the winner of the slogan contest with her big heart framing the slogan “stop bullying start caring – Life is good Evergreen”

The special event was a success from all perspectives and was summarized by Stephen Bennett Executive Director “As you know, the campaign was not just about wearing pink for the day, but it was about drawing attention to bullying in all its forms and working together to eradicate this from our Society. At Evergreen we have been working over the past couple of years to educate staff as to what bullying and harassment is and how to identify it in the workplace and we will continue to work to ensure we have the right policies and processes in place”
