“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)

Still awaiting more submissions to be published

The number of submission which have been authorised for publication remains unchanged - only 71 of the 209 received have been published.

The Committee has a huge job to read and edit these publications.  News is that there will be another lot of submissions authorised for publication tomorrow, Thursday.

Exciting news - there should be more submissions from bullied staff and students from the University of Newcastle authorised for publication.  We will keep you alerted to this!

Remember what John Howard said "Stay alert but not alarmed".

So be alert - it is the University of Newcastle that has to be alarmed.
