“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)

University of Newcastle riding high in the rankings

The University of Newcastle prides itself on being a

"Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation, acknowledging UON as a national role model for innovation and best practice on issues of workplace gender equality." (UoN website).

The University also loudly proclaims that it is in the top 3% of universities in the world (lying somewhere between 250th and 300th in the rankings).

THe University must therefore be thrilled with the latest rankings:  In the "Fastest Growing Sugar Baby Schools ranking, with the University of Sydney topping the list with 90 new members joining in past 12 months. The University of Newcastle was close behind with 85 sign-ups".

So what is this latest ranking?   This is the "Seeking arrangement" organisation for "young women and students who date older, rich men, known as “sugar daddies”, in return for lavish gifts and allowances".  “Young, educated and broke” Australian students are now “easing the burden with help from sugar daddies”.

One student in Perth received around $75,000 last year from her sugar daddy.  Seeking Arrangement says that their "arrangements" are an easy answer to crippling student debt.

In true gender equality style, the student from Perth"says it took a “couple of months” before they had sex". 

Will the University of Newcastle be adding this to their adverts and to their website

  1. One of the victims of Newcastle University is now fighting for their lives in hospital. I hope management are glad they have almost cost a decent person their life.

    I swear revenge on the people who did this.
