“Systemic bullying, hazing and abuse generally are identified with poor, weak or toxic organizational cultures. Cultures that are toxic have stated ethical values that are espoused but not employed, and other non-ethical values which are operational, dominant, but unstated.
Such cultures thrive when good people are silent, silenced, or pushed out; when bad apples are vocal, retained, promoted, and empowered; and when the neutral majority remain silent in order to survive. Those who are most successful in such a toxic culture are those who have adapted to it, or adopted it as their own”. (McKay, Arnold, Fratzl & Thomas, 2008)

Right to protest on campus
We hope that you get a great deal of support from the University of Newcastle ALLIES such as Kevin McConkey, Kim Foster, Brid Corrigan, Mike Calford, Belinda Munn, etc.
We are horrified about the extent of bullying at the University of Newcastle - 185 staff and students have told us about their bullying and this includes people who have been bullied because of their sexual orientation.
We would like to support you more openly but we have been prevented from displaying posters about our anti-bullying campaign (see previous posts on posters).
